£0raised of £10,000 target by 0 supporters

    Weʼve raised £0 to Fund research into Mental Health Disability in Professional Actors, focusing on best practice.

    Closed on Thursday, 9th August 2018

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    I have been offered a place to do a research PhD on Mental Health Disability in Actors, focussing on best practice through, the Manchester School Of Theatre at Manchester Metropolitan University (member of the Federation of Drama Schools)

    The place is there, the team is in place but the funding is proving a problem. 

    At present there is very little research on any kind of mental health issues in actors and nothing on mental health disability. For an industry that trades in emotion this is a major oversight. 

    I believe that improving best practice around mental health disability would positively impact on wider mental health issues as well.

    The research would take 3 years (full-time) and would aim to produce workable best practice guidelines based on evidence rather than anecdotes.

    I have received various kinds of support from organisations including:

    Equity UK

    The Federation of International Actors

    The Arts Council

    As well as a wide range of theatre companies and individual practitioners. 

    Funding will go towards:

    Running workshops

    Running other events

    Paying practitioners

    Paying research salary (in line with university stipends)

    Promotional material

    Sourcing resources

    (Please note this is not an exhaustive list, but all funds will go into the research or related work.)
