We are pleased to announce a number things here, firstly, that Ian Berry will work to support CALM - A charity very close to his heart. He has seen the charity grow from the early days into the succes it is now. A charity thathas brought so much attention to its major cause.
THE CAMPAIGN AGAINST LIVING MISERABLY, or CALM, is a registered charity, which exists to prevent male suicide in the UK. In 2014, male suicide accounts for 76% of all suicides and is the single biggest cause of death in men under 45 in the UK.
Calm will work with the Being a Man Festival at the South Bank Centre this coming weekend.
This year they will look at what it means to be a hero, from the artists who challenge expectations, to the heroism it takes to embrace your true identity. The heroes include award-winning artist, BAFTA-winning TV presenter, Reith Lecturer and best-selling author Grayson Perry, Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM) patron Professor Green who in recent documentaries has brought attention to a range of issues from homelessness to dangerous dogs, male suicide and depression; the founding fathers of hip hop, The Last Poets alongside Ashley Walters; trailblazing solo artist and frontman of Bloc Party, Kele Okereke; and Sir Roger Moore, who reflects candidly on stepping into the shoes of the ultimate on-screen hero, 007.
Ian Berry will work with CALM to hel make and design their next award winning magazine, the Calmzine. Part of it live and with full interaction. Attendees can have their picture taken in front on the blown up front cover. So get you tickets here
