The Hey Mate Gig Initiative works to support and stamp out the stigma and social isolation experienced with mental health and anxiety.

They provide social and emotional support to improve the well being and overall experience of back-of-house artists, crew, etc, and front-of-house gig-goers attending events.

Working in conjunction with artists, venues, festivals, touring companies and more they aim to build a more inclusive and considerate culture, experience, and wider community.

The goal of the Hey Mate Gig Initiative is to change the way we look at wellbeing in the arts, bringing back that feel-good feeling for creatives, artists, industry professionals and the wider community.
