Art + Healing + Justice
At a time when war, violence, oppression, climate change, and a global pandemic continue to threaten our existence, the toll on our mental and emotional wellbeing is undeniable.
Art making has long served as a tool for healing. It can disrupt our fight-or-flight response, serve as an outlet for grief, outrage, joy, and hope, restore our sense of humanity, and help us make sense of the pain inside us and around us. It also taps into our imagination—the medicine we need to build a more equitable world.
This May 2022, during Mental Health Awareness month, Healing Together proudly launches its first annual virtual art exhibition.
At the intersection of art, healing, and justice, this exhibition aims to:
Uplift the importance of mental health and healing
Cultivate healing through creative expression
Break the stigma of mental health
Celebrate art and artists around the world
Raise funds for Healing Together's community-led mental health programs
Submit your visual artwork between May 1-28, 2022 at 10pm Pacific.
Share with your community and vote for your favorite. Public voting is being extended until end of day, May 30th.
