This year's Industry Minds Awards will be held on November 30 at Manchester's Hope Mill Theatre.
The ceremony will be hosted by Industry Minds and Hope Mill Theatre patron Denise Welch – a leading advocate for mental health in the arts industry. The ceremony will recognise those championing the cause of mental and physical health in the creative arts.
Socially distanced audience measures will be in place, and the ceremony will also be live-streamed for those not able to be there in person.
Industry Minds founders Scarlett Maltman & Cathy Read said: ‘We are delighted to still be able to run the awards this year as we feel awareness of mental health is needed more than ever right now.
We are equally delighted to be hosting the ceremony at Hope Mill. We ran our first mental health seminar of the year there in January, so to end the year with the awards is very significant to us, especially in the current climate.”
Nominees for awards will be announced at the beginning of November. The evening will include special guest performances from northern talent and 2020 graduates. Tickets go on sale on Monday at 5pm from the theatre website here,
