Why I'm crowdsourcing 100 silly things we did when we felt depressed.

Why I'm crowdsourcing 100 silly things we did when we felt depressed.

Exactly a year ago, Black Dog Gold Fish by my theatre company Parrot in the Tank got funded on Kickstarter. Back then, the idea was to make a little show with a big heart to tell a tender story about depression.

Since then, we got Arts Council funding to open the show again in London on 15th March. But looking over the year, it's been even more brilliant to see that we're not by far the only story in the arts that has brought depression to the public attention. On the contrary, the topic has exploded amongst theatre-makers.
