About our Illuminations Series

Oct
11

This month, in collaboration with the Scottish Mental Health Arts and Film Festival, TYCI will be exploring issues surrounding female mental health and wellbeing with our Illuminations series.

Over the course of the festival, we shall be showcasing the talent and stories of many women who have come forward to share their experiences of mental illness. Illuminations will feature written pieces, illustrations, poetry and interviews with women who have been kind enough to share their stories with us.

TYCI want to extend a sincere thank you to all of our contributors and volunteers. We hope that through this feature, we can increase understanding of mental illness and encourage discussion. Most importantly, we want to give those dealing with these problems a voice and reduce stigma surrounding mental health issues.

Please do note however, that this series contains frank discussion of struggles with mental health and and may act as a trigger for some readers. If you are affected by any of the issues discussed in this article, please consider checking out the Mental Health Foundation who can advise you on where to seek help.

There’s still time to get involved with the series. Email us at contact.tyci@gmail.com if you’d like to contribute.

A Wee Note From the Collective

Sep
29

TYCI is a not for profit collective run by women. Although we are based in Glasgow, we have an amazing variety of contributors who stretch far and wide across the globe.

We are run entirely by volunteers who generously give up their own time, feelings, ideas, and often money to help us celebrate all things femme.

In the short while that we have been functioning, we have expanded from a small monthly club night, to an international multimedia platform and events series. All of what we do now is formed entirely on passionate people coming forward to lend their own ideas of what they want to see and do with the collective.

We are always looking for more contributors to help broaden the discussion and so if you are ever interested in getting involved in the collective, please do contact us because we would love to hear from you.

You can find us on all the socials @tyciblog or email us on contact.tyci@gmail.com

Indianapolis label Joyful Noise Recordings are consistently on point with the music they release. Their roster boasts the likes of Dinosaur Jr, David Yow, Memory Map, Deerhoof, Joan Of Arc and more.

My latest addiction is newly announced Ko and Kristin Newborn is the lady behind the name. Previously from LA, she now resides in Indianapolis. Having originally been in the intriguingly named Slothpop, Kirstin started penning under the name of Ko from 2007.
