Today we are thrilled to launch BLOOM 2022 – A free community festival for mental health awareness week!
After hosting online festivals in 2020 and 2021, we are delighted to announce we will be running the festival in person this year, as well as offering the chance to get involved online.
From photography to yoga, poetry to panel discussions – we can’t wait to tell you what we’ve got planned! Pop this date in your diary and keep an eye on our pages to make sure you’re involved.
Because Bloom is for everyone, we’re offering you the opportunity to let us know your thoughts on what mental wellbeing means to you and what you would like to see at this year’s festival. You can join us for a think-in (and a coffee) on Wednesday 2nd February, details here.
This year we are generously supported by Iron Mill College and The Exeter.
“Iron Mill College, Exeter, is delighted to be sponsoring such a fantastic event that will raise the awareness of mental health and wellbeing in our city. With our 40-year history of delivering activities and workshops on mental health, our low-cost counselling service, and training courses to professionally qualify counsellors and psychotherapist, it is a focus of great significance and concern to us. We support the Bloom Festival wholeheartedly and are looking forward to seeing everyone there. Do come and say hello!” – Principal – Dr. Jo Trelfa.
We can’t wait to see you there!
