Giving form to our mental illness and substance use pains, challenges, and transcendence. The power of molding our stories into tangible form, to share or at least put out into the world: nothing says “we are not alone” so effectively. Please join us as we offer art-making activities in memory or honor of loved ones, followed by a program of sharing: Bring along and offer your own shaped creation paying tribute to those you love or what must be remembered —a healing experience for all.

Shout out to @alyserurianidesign powerful and brave art: “kindred is a photo + embroidery series based in process. each photo + embroidery represents one day; my face that day, my emotions that day, my life that day, my thoughts that day. I embroidered onto the photo in whatever way felt right. I explored emotions without the context of language- something I am not accustomed to and, frankly, something I fear. the end product calls to look at the layers of the image and the relationship between them. this project holds as a sort of visual journal where I can express myself and my vulnerability without edits.“ #newdaycampaign #newdaycampaignartists #thenewdaycampaign #fightstigma #healingarts #newdaynostigma #newdaycampaignartistoftheweek #ndcartistoftheweek #artistoftheweek.
