In this episode Angela Samata meets with Mark Storor to chat about his recent work with Heart of Glass and why creativity is an essential part of an authentic human experience.
Mark is an artist who specialises in platforming the voices of those we all too rarely choose to hear. He usually works over several years to create extraordinarily beautiful and uplifting work in which community participants and professionals work side by side in genuine partnership. Mark is currently working with Heart of Glass on a twelve year project called Baa Baa Baric, Have you any pull? and over the past four years of this work he’s been focused on The Suicide Chronicles, which seeks to develop a collective and creative language for the complex experience of suicide.
Angela Samata is a mental health campaigner working in the fields of suicide prevention and postvention. She is a consultant on the Suicide Chronicles project and has also contributed to this project as a participant.
