Turbulent Waters: A Rising Tide

Turbulent Waters: A Rising Tide

Baltimore Polytechnic Institute

A recent study found death from suicide has surpassed death from traffic accidents for the first time ever in young people age 10-14; schools are seeing an increased need for mental health support and services; and more. Young people face increasing experience with and risk of behavioral health challenges, whether they attend public or private school. Just what are the depths of the challenges, what are we doing, and what can we do? Join us in an evening of art, performance, information, and conversation as we share our stories of turbulent waters, and what we can be doing more of to stem the tide.

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.
