Welcome to the New Day Campaign

We are an idea. A methodology. An experience.  

We create and curate art-based public events and art exhibitions to challenge stigma and discrimination associated with mental illness and substance use, making the world a more healing place.

Founded in 2015, and owned and operated by Bruun Studios, we offer tailor-made New Day Campaign activities to interested parties with whom we work closely on all aspects of planning and execution.

It's a New Day.

1 out of every 5 people you see or talk to today has experienced mental illness.
1 out of every 3 households in your community is suffering the impact of someone’s addiction to drugs or alcohol.

Mental illness and substance abuse are complex illnesses. They strike at multiple levels - body, mind, and spirit; individual, family, and community.  They are more prevalent and more devastating than many people know; they are also more preventable and treatable than most people understand. Ending the stigma, discrimination, and shame that dominates attitudes about mental illness and substance opens pathways to healing. That’s why we say: “Where stigma ends, healing begins.”

New Day Campaign Founders' Circle

The Founders' Circle was the 2016-2017 fundraising campaign to secure the future of the New Day Campaign. Thank you to the individuals, organizations, institutions, and foundations who donated to help us make the New Day Campaign an ongoing reality.
