In addition, there will also be talks from Punk4MentalHealth International featuring Craig Lewis and Sherry Craig (coming all the way from Boston, US) and a live Skype interview will with Duffo (Jeff Duff) from Australia.

 

Finally, several artists have donated drawings and painting, amongst whom are Jamun Moon Miah, Aiden Moore and The Punk Professor (we will have over 80 pieces from him!). In addition, we will also have a book launch by The Punk Professor called 'Fifty Pictures of Living a Meaningful Life'.
