rollerskating legs background for skate of mind live

After almost a year of delays due to the pandemic, we actually managed to run our Skate of Mind Live event at Theatre Peckham!

As we were just coming out of lockdown we decided to scale back our ideas for the original event and take this an opportunity to run it as a test event with limited capacity.

To my surprise, it sold out within a few days of the tickets going on sale (no pressure then!).

This is a testament to the need and demand for indoor spaces in the run-up to autumn and winter at least.

Thank You

It’s world mental health awareness day, and I tried to kick my anxiety of podcasting to one side to create the Skate Of Mind Pod!!!

The first guest in the Skate Of Mind Pod was non-other than Yanka, aka “Jiggy Dust”.

Listen now via anchor.fm, Spotify.

So we’re here in #MentalHealthAwarenessWeek which would have been the count down to our event with Theatre Peckham this Saturday but as with most events, the recent health crisis has put it on pause.

However, it still is Mental Health Awareness Week, and for many, anxiety and depression have been reported to be on the increase due to isolation and lockdowns.

Many of us have found a way to adapted and find a way to keep skating, but for some of us who have limited space, this has been a relatively hard time, with no way to vent via their usual skate outlet.

For this reason, we think it’s important to continue to share our #SkateOfMind stories with you this week.

 

 

Special Thanks Roller Girl Gang and to those who have contributed and allowed us to share with you how skating has helped them through some hard times.

When things are…
