Kindness plays a vital role in recovery and it is a quality that members of the New Note Orchestra are keen to practice.

As members will tell you, few things are more cruel than addiction and alcoholism. Recovery takes patience, tolerance and kindness to be effective with many of the support groups citing kindness as one of the cornerstones of ongoing sobriety.

Kind Rebellion is a collaboration with the University of Sussex, which has its own kindness research department where teams of researchers explore and highlight how acts of kindness impact people and communities. The orchestra will perform a 45-minute set with music composed by the orchestra musicians along with Artistic Director Conall Gleeson.

The Kind Rebellion performance will also include poetry, short films and an animation as well a Q&A with leading experts from the London School of Economics, Sussex University and members of the orchestra. The performance will examine how being kind helps boost well being as well as look at how it can underpin good mental health. The panel discussion will explore acts of kindness in more detail by examining the brain science and psychology around being kind.
