The choice of title ‘Inside Out’ is a reference to how our worlds have been turned inside out in the last year – The Arts, along with so many other industries has been incredibly hard hit and so many talented individuals have had to seek work and support elsewhere. Inside Out also mirrors a popular Neal’s Yard Remedies belief – that it truly matters how we treat our bodies and our own well-being, starting from the inside, out. This is also a practical visualisation of the events – taking place both inside and out! The ‘Inside Out’ team is a collective of Creative Arts professionals.
