Here’s my full presentation from August 30, 2019, at the Centre for Media and Celebrity Studies conference in Times Square, New York City. I was a bit shaky, and emotional, but battled through to talk about how fans of Frightened Rabbit rallied together to raise awareness and funds for mental health initiatives through community-building activities. Thank you to my fellow scholars for creating a safe space to discuss such a personal topic. This presentation was made for my friends Josh, Parker, and Liam – as much as it was made for Scott Hutchison and my fellow fans. #CMCS19
Trigger warning: discussion of depression and suicide.
Coming soon: the full slides and outline of this presentation.
