CELEBRATE ME! is all about you–your voice, your healing, your community! If you’re an artist, healer, and/or mental health professional, join us at Willow Cove Art and Wellness as we engage in expressive art and healing circles that:
- Challenge the silence and stigma of BIPOC
- Change the narrative of racism and victimization
- Continue the unlearning and re-educating process for BIPOC
- Connect the artist network to the healing community
- Celebrate the healing journey creatively through conversations that heal.
Have you received inadequate mental health support due to the color of your skin? Are you interested in sharing your story? Please consider participating in Connecting the Dots between Race and Health, a project of Ideastream Public Media funded by The Dr. Donald J. Goodman and Ruth Weber Goodman Philanthropic Fund of the Cleveland Foundation.
CELEBRATE ME! is an 8-month project (February-July) with a culminating art exhibit and gallery talk in the Fall 2022. Local artists will teach you several art forms to include Zentangle, portraiture painting, and abstract expressionism alongside group talks about your mental health journey and how it was impacted by racism. Going through the process of healing with others can help you reflect on the unhappy aspects of your life from a new perspective.
How It Works: Participation is limited to eight adults who…
- have the capacity and readiness to be vulnerable regarding their mental health story.
- can commit to the duration of the 8-month project.
- is available for most workshops which will meet once a month, for 2 1/2 -3 hours. (Schedule is being finalized but all workshops are projected to be on the first Saturday of each month, 11 AM – 2 PM.)
All basic supplies will be provided at no cost to you. This project is part of Connecting the Dots Between Race and Health, a project of Ideastream Public Media funded by The Dr. Donald J. Goodman and Ruth Weber Goodman Philanthropic Fund of The Cleveland Foundation.
