"Every year, over two million people in the UK experience domestic abuse. None of them should have to wait until they’re in crisis before we pay attention. We need to see the whole person, the whole family and the whole society if we are to truly see the whole picture.
Alongside Allie Crewe’s powerful 'I Am' exhibition (in St Peter’S Square and across Greater Manchester’s Metrolink network), SICK! Festival has been working with SafeLives and local organisations to create a Living Library.
Living Library – Domestic Violence gives you an opportunity to meet people who have survived domestic violence, those who campaign against it, people who help survivors to rebuild their lives and others who help perpetrators change their behaviour. Visitors to the Living Library have 15 minutes for frank, open conversation, to listen, ask questions and reflect.
SafeLives is a UK-wide charity dedicated to ending domestic abuse, for everyone and for good. SafeLives work with organisations across the UK to transform the response to domestic abuse.

SICK! Festival 2022 (previously in 2019 and biannually back to 2013) is an arts and health festival that takes place in the heart of the community. Working with fantastic local & international artists, poets, theatre-makers, musicians and computer game designers, we want to start a conversation about what makes us feel good, and what makes us feel… not so good. SICK! Festival faces up to the complexities of mental and physical health.
