Giving those who have experienced homelessness, mental health issues and addiction a voice to express their creativity and present their stories to the world, Raised Voices is an award winning charity founded by Blair Christie. Each year the members of Raised Voices create and star in a show at the Edinburgh Fringe. This year they presented Slings and Arrows, a story following a woman with undiagnosed mental health issues. In the third episode of With Whom on Zoom we hear about what compelled Blair to begin the charity, how it has helped the members of Raised Voices and why it is essential to be able to engage with the arts.
Updates on upcoming Raised Voices productions can be found on their website.
