Behind Headfunk #2: In the studio with Headfunk Collective

Take a look behind the scenes at our brand new all male performance company for those passionate about dance and wellbeing

Our aim with Headfunk Collective is to bring together like minded male adults of all ages to share, listen, create and perform together telling stories and exploring themes around men’s mental health.
