Suicide's Requiem is a collaborative dance-theater performance created & performed by and about survivors of suicide and mental health issues - whether directly or through a loved one - soundtracked by Mozart's Requiem and personal interviews. Our aim is to educate people about suicide through personal perspectives, and encourage personal and societal healing around mental health. I have been involved with this project since day 1 and have found it profoundly powerful; I would be really honoured to have your presence. [more inside]
So I got inspired by the original Mefi's OwnTM Big Ideas Social Club and got the blessing to start a chapter in Brisbane. The first meeting's mostly a chance to come up with ideas for other meetings, and to see how demand is like. TEDxYouthBrisbane is at the same venue the next day, so if you want to spend a weekend here this is a good time. [more inside]
