A collaboration with Manchester Mind contributing to continued awareness of male mental health with proceeds going to the charity. The project premiered on World Mental Health Day at HOME – Manchester’s centre for international contemporary art, theatre, and film.

The work features four film commissions, a 12 track download album of songs, spoken word and remixes, along with a limited edition of bespoke handmade and painted mini head sculptures – the icon for the work. These are housed in handmade, hand stamped boxes featuring lapel badge and poster.

The topic is explored by a series of internationally acclaimed mixed discipline artists, that intends to challenge and inspire whilst celebrating the makers involved. ‘A Different Light’ uses creativity to encourage more open discussion of sensitive issues that affect us all.

FOUR SONGS by Chris Butler, produced by Simon Connor featuring ‘Chorus Of Others’ male choir formed for Manchester International Festival.
