Did you know that the performing arts can be therapeutic for mental health issues, and can help the healing process from PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) and TBI (traumatic brain injury)? Iconic has always shown a deep interest in social issues and this is why we are currently designing the programme Fast Forward, to support ex-military personnel, especially those suffering from stress-related disorders, re-adjusting to civvy life after serving our country. We want to give them opportunities to develop skills, pursue a career in the performing arts and gain employment.
Turning a true story into a song to bring awareness about domestic violence can be a challenging project, especially when the true story is your own. Kellyann Mitchell, a young and talented actress and director, collaborated with the rapper Lacky C to create "Storyteller", a music video about her life as a victim of domestic abuse. As something very close to both their hearts, Kellyann Mitchell and Lacky C spent all year putting together this project which aims to help families recognise the consequences of domestic violence, especially when children are involved. The music video was released on 25th November as part of International Day For Elimination Of Violence Against Women 2017.
