Tuesday November 26, 2019 - 8PM - FREE

Unit 2 Community Space, 163 Sterling Road.


Communing with or expressing oneself via the arts, music, poetry, comedy, journaling, painting, etc. has often been cited as a panacea for dealing with depression and other mental health issues. But what happens when the person dealing with these issues is an artist themselves?

This panel will be a discussion about self-care and mental health for musicians and other creatives in the DIY/grassroots/underground creative arts space with input and expertise from artists themselves as well those who advocate or work with creatives on these issues.

Topics will include but are not restricted to:
-The relationship between art creation and mental health
-How music and the arts are helping lift the stigma on mental health issues
-Prioritizing self-care within a creative artistic lifestyle
-Coping mechanisms for dealing with mental health issues
-Finding and gaining access to resources and tools to aid in mental health/self-care
