Recognition… Validation… Reassurance… Art + Mental Wellness is a collaboration between artist Dick Averns and SPARK Disability Arts Festival to utilize spaces in and around Arts Commons: engaging public audiences on the topic of mental wellness. The installation hopes to address feelings of invisibility and isolation that often accompany mental distress.
The exhibition also includes workshop opportunities that will encourage participants to self-express through collage, drawing, and text-based art. This project is supported by the City of Calgary and Calgary Arts Development.
