About All in the Mind Festival
All in the Mind Festival was our flagship annual event that ran from 2016 until 2022. It was created for performers to explore mental health themes and personal experience in their work. All in the Mind grew to become one of the UK’s leading mental health arts festivals, with an audience of 6,000 people in 2022. A free, family-friendly day out in the heart of Basingstoke, All in the Mind Festival celebrated the power of the arts to boost mental health, with a jam-packed line up to inspire and delight all ages.
The festival featured music, dance, theatre, spoken word, comedy and interactive activities to try. All in the Mind Festival had something for everyone, while giving performers a safe, supportive platform to try new ideas and reach new audiences.
Fluid Motion is passionate about the positive impact the arts can have on mental wellbeing – whether you’re performing or spectating. The festival may have finished, but its ethos will still remain: to spark conversations and combat stigmas around mental health and wellbeing in an uplifting, inspiring way that people of all ages can engage with and relate to.
