Alright Mate? is an audio-visual installation that explores male mental health through presenting conversations with and photographs of individuals discussing their ideas and experiences around male mental health. It is a collaboration between myself Exeter-based playwright and mental health specialist Cally Hayes,
With suicide being the biggest killer of men under 50 in the UK, we wanted to create a piece of work that shared and encouraged conversations where men can talk about their feelings, and felt it was important to present it in an informal, everyday space like a barbershop, where it is highly accessible, as well as working in partnership with local independent business.
