Where There Is Darkness, Light

Erasing the stigma attached to mental illness can only be removed when we do it together. This event celebrates the brilliance, creative expression and artistic ability that can come out through the dark. From 7-11 p.m. on March 18 there will be art on the walls as well as words, music, poetry and monologue in an open mic format. We will share our stories and our hopes. 

In 2014 alone: 
One in five American adults experienced a mental health issue

One in 10 young people experienced a period of major depression

One in 25 Americans lived with a serious mental illness, such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, or major depression

Whether you work through this using your own paths to healing, medication, diet or meditation, mental health affects everyone and is handled differently, person to person. 

The theme of darkness and light will be a backdrop to this event and continues to take shape by the day, so to speak. If you are interested in participating or helping, please contact Jenice at artislifestudio@jenicejohnson.com or call 817-307-9384.

Snacks will be provided and love offering is always appreciated at the studio. 

Please note: In keeping with the mission of the space as a safe place for recovery, no booze or drugs allowed.
