Artist Statement

This new brand aims to challenge the stigma behind depression and reduce the number of males who suffer in silence. The organisation will initially be an online platform for males to follow, find podcasts and watch talks by motivational speakers prompting males to keep engaged with the brand as it develops. After 12 months a lifestyle and wellbeing app ‘Tap IN’, aimed at millennial male consumers, will be released to help users change their daily cycle, become more aware of their own feelings and improve their wellbeing.
