London, UK, 2010—Little Episodes, an international collaborative art project, will hold its official launch party on 25th February, 2010. The event will feature musical performances, an art exhibition and showcase material from the 'expression of depression' anthology series. The first of the 6 book volume features work form Sadie Frost, Clint Catalyst and Pauley Perrette among others. Little Episodes monthly “Late Night Episodes” feature poetry, performance, music and art and are held at the Novas Contemporary Urban Centre on the last Saturday of every month. Their first “Late Night Episode” features resident bands 'The Harrison Brothers' and 'Straitjacket Coat-Check' plus regular guests and headlining acts to be announced.
Depression, addiction and mental illness are common problems in the modern world, with one in four people likely to experience a mental health problem every year. Established in 2009, Little Episodes is a not-for-profit organization consisting of professional writers, artists, musicians and actors with three aims to its mission statement: the first, to destigmatise and raise awareness of depression, addiction and mental illness; the second, to promote the arts as a therapeutic tool by holding writing and art therapy workshops; and third, to provide a platform for both emerging and established writers/artists to find community and collaboration using the first goal as their theme.
Little Episodes focuses on a range of activities:
- Anthologies – Little Episodes produces anthologies by established and emerging artists /writers.
- Events – Little Episodes holds regular “Late Night Episodes” featuring material from our anthology series and our participating artists and performers.
- Residential units or day centres - Little Episodes is keen to reach out to people who can’t get to other Little Episodes events. These visits can include readings from the books, performances and/or a general Q&A…
