What is Headfunk?

WhatisHeadfunk?

Headfunk is a thought provoking and entertaining event shining a light on men’s mental health. Throughout years of experience we have seen first hand the life changing positive impact that creativity, dance and expression can have on a person’s mental health and wellbeing.
