Many of us have been finding life as artists, musicians and creators challenging during these unusual times. Britain Behind the Mask is a chance to process the challenges, gain insights and give voice to our stories of lockdown and beyond.

Guided by creative artists and mental health practitioners Kyra Hall-Gelly MBACP, Marissa Green HCPC, and acclaimed theatre-maker, beatboxer and poet Paul Cree, artists and creators will take part in a series of four workshops offering an artistic and creative exploration of lockdown through storytelling, writing, art, and theatre-making.
