Feel Good Club Partner with Manchester’s Finest to promote their Positivity Campaign
Feel Good Club and Manchester's Finest have joined forces with Jack Arts to spread messages of positivity on outdoor spaces and billboards across the City of Manchester, that launched on this year’s blue Monday.
The third Monday in January is commonly known as Blue Monday and it is claimed to be 'one of the most depressing days of the year'. The most common factors that cause this is are a combination of the dark winter nights, cold weather and the end of the Christmas and New Year festivities.
This year though it's very different, with another lockdown in place, which is already impacting people's mental health, Feel Good Club and Manchester's Finest recognised this and came together to help spread some positivity with a set of simple, but strong and uplifting messages to let people know they're not alone in how they feel.
When Manchester's Finest and Feel Good Club started working on the campaign, Jack Arts kindly offered up their billboard and poster spaces across Manchester, to host these messages of support.
Commenting on the campaign, Miranda Banfield, of Jack Arts said "Bringing inspiration to the streets and positivity to our communities is at the heart of what we do at Jack Arts. We are delighted to be a part of this important project, displaying these powerful messages across Manchester, in the hope they are seen by those who might need them most."
Co-Founder of Feel Good Club, Kiera Lawlor-Skillen added "Feel Good Club is all about spreading positivity and making sure that people know they aren't alone in how they feel, whether that's a good day or a bad day, so on blue Monday it was more important than ever for us to do something that could possibly bring a smile to someone's face."
Director at Manchester's Finest, Steven Pankhurst commented "Finest was created for the people and ecology of Manchester. At a time where we all face our own unique challenges, we want to show support and spread a bit of positivity to everyone in our city.”
The posters, with messages of positivity, will be up across the city for two weeks, from Monday 18th January.
