Pulse was a theatre collective for 18-30 year-olds in Medway that used theatre as a vehicle to tackle stigmas surrounding mental health and provided opportunities to learn new skills, and develop confidence and creativity.

Led by its members, Pulse brought together like-minded people who were passionate, creative and friendly to co-create innovative new work with Medway’s wider community, with a particular focus on connecting with older adults in care homes.

Pulse was supported by the People’s Health Trust and the Henry Smith Charity and met weekly from 2018-2020.
