Pigs Might Fly is a Hoot-hosted festival celebrating the arts and mental health. A week of activity climaxes on World Mental Health Day on Saturday 10 October.
Make something extraordinary happen - a festival celebrating the fantastic, the whacky, the offbeat, the shocking, the sublime, the stunning and the downright silly.
A celebration of the remarkable breadth of the scope of the human brain to turn pain into joy, blobs of paint into masterpieces, struggle into exploration, air into song, worry into hope, words into plays, isolation into connection - to believe that pigs might fly.
Hoot and AIM (Artists in Mind) are working together to deliver a range of creative arts projects to enhance the health and wellbeing of people who experience, or are at risk of experiencing, mental health difficulties. All groups and activities are delivered by experienced artists and are free. No experience needed
HOOT offers a range of opportunities for people to get involved in music, dance and other creative activities as a way of improving physical and emotional wellbeing. Based on the simple and universally understood facts that playing music and dancing brings people together and makes them feel good, we work with local groups and communities to develop creative projects that everyone can take part in.

AIM harnesses the positive benefits of creativity in visual arts to support people experiencing acute and enduring mental health problems. We provide studio spaces with support from practising artists and we also initiate and manage creative projects in prisons, secure hospitals, forensic units and in the community.
