Time Out says
The self-care festival brought to you by Pedestrian.TV comes to Melbourne, spruiking mindfulness and mental health with a healthy dose of irreverence
When was the last time you took a day all for yourself? At this festival dedicated to self care curated by pop culture website Pedestrian.TV, you're encouraged to look out for Number One with of talks and activities focused on mental and physical wellbeing. Build your sex positivity and self esteem with sexologist Chantelle Otten; find a healthy approach to social media with Alex Hayes; combat the anxiety of dating with relationships expert Mel Schilling from Married at First Sight; and get a crash course in manifesting what you want with Flex Mami.
Ciarran Stott, the tattooed Brit who made a splash on The Bachelor, will be taking his kit off in the name of art for a life-drawing session run by artist Aurora Campbell. LGBTQIA comedians will wrestle with big issues during the Big Gay Debate, and award-winning comedy duo Double Denim will get those stress-busting endorphins flowing, while the House of Angostura will host a discussion on low- and non-alcoholic drinking trends. Between all that there will be real talk, live music featuring Banoffee, food trucks, DJs and ping pong to keep you busy. Not only will you walk away with more balance, perspective and self-love, but you can also feel good knowing that $5 from every Selfish Saturday ticket is going to the RSPCA Victoria.
