I’m honored to participate in two events as part of Peter Brunn’s New Day Campaign using the arts to heal addiction and mental illness. Here are some details. Hope to see you there!
175 W. Ostend Street #E, Baltimore MD, 21230
September 12, 2018, 3:30 – 5:00pm
Are you a visual artist, performer, writer, or other sort of creative person who wants to challenge stigma associated with mental illness or substance use? Do you care about making a difference with your art and words? Here is your chance to learn how to become involved with the New Day Campaign’s Dusk & Dawn series of programs in 2018-2019: join us for a gallery reception from 3:30-4:00pm, followed by a presentation and question and answer session with New Day Campaign founder and director, Peter Bruun.
1101 Maiden Choice Lane, Baltimore MD, 21229
December 2, 2018, 4:00 – 6:30pm
An exploration on the therapeutic power of art making (and making art about what ails us), and a look at the related but different clinical practice of art therapy. Please join poet and author Ann Bracken, writer and spoken word artist Kondwani Fidel, art therapists Sharon Strouse and Peggy Kolodny, and the artists who exhibit in We the People: New Day Campaign in an event combining performance, readings, and conversation. Reception with light appetizers and refreshments and a hands-on therapeutic art activity begins at 4:00pm; program and conversation begins at 5:00pm.
