Conversations for Change resources have been created so that anyone can learn more, share it with others and even recreate the work. They are free to download and use.

Platform 2 Film

A 7 minute film showing the final intervention at Edinburgh Waverley Train Station and interviews with the Creative Team. Invite a group of people to watch together, or play on a continuous loop as part of a display. You can download it or watch it online.

Materials: A screen, or projector. The film is 7 minutes long and is also available with subtitles.

How to: Test the file on your equipment in plenty of time before your planned screening. If it is not in the correct format, you will need to convert it or ask someone to convert it for you. 

Tip: Print out some information about your project and ‘Support Lines’ for mental health like the ones at the bottom of this page. After the screening people may join in a conversation afterwards about their thoughts on the question.

 

THE QUESTION FILM

A 3 minute moving graphic of the question - ‘Is mental health a difficult topic for everyday conversation?’, asked to different people and in various languages. This film is likely not suitable for a seated screening as it displays only text and has no sound. It can be thought provoking if played in the background somewhere on a loop, where people are passing by or waiting. You can download it or watch it online.

Materials: A screen, or projector. As there is no sound then you don’t need speakers.

How to: Test the file on your equipment before you plan to screen it. If it is not in the correct format you will need to convert it or ask someone to convert it for you. Play on a loop.

Tip: Print out some information about your project and ‘Support Lines’ for mental health like the ones at the bottom of this page.
