Our colleague Marissa Groguhé is in the running for an En-tête prize, which rewards reporting devoted to mental health. She was selected for her file Exhausted artists, canceled tourspublished in The Press at the beginning of 2023.
Based on the cancellations of shows made successively by Shawn Mendes, Santigold, Sam Fender and several others for reasons of exhaustion and mental health issues, the journalist had collected the confidences of artists from here also at the end of the roll. His research notably allowed him to reveal that 72% of artists questioned by various professional associations were experiencing psychological distress.
