SUNDAY TIMES ARTICLE, RUBY WAX, AND LIGHTBULBS / 14 July 2008
Allo people, these last few weeks have been busy in the House of the Insen. I was interviewed for a Sunday Times article about pushing madness into the limelight. You can read it online at http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/life_and_style/health/mental_health/article4302640.ece
The reason the article was written is because the 3rd Bonkersfest is on this Saturday 19th July on Camberwell Green. BonkersFest! is a free annual one day summer arts and music festival, illuminating and celebrating madness, creativity, individuality and eccentricity; combating stigma and promoting good mental health.
Armed with nothing more than a stepladder and a light bulb, I will attempt – at set periods during the day – to screw the lightbulb into the sky. I am doing this because the world needs more light. To quote Groucho Marx - 'Blessed are the cracked, for they shall let in the light'.
If you are attending, come say hello to me. I will be very easy to recognise: I will be holding a lightbulb. The Bonkerfest website is http://www.bonkersfest.com
I will also be interviewed by Ruby Wax this week for the Headroom Campaign on the BBC website. More info when I have actually done the interview and know when it is online.
I know I am a professional mad person, but is being a workaholic in this area good or bad!
