INTRODUCING, SANCTUARY SPACE!
Sanctuary Space—part of Art With Impact’s Continued Connections program—is a series of community events where people gather online to explore connections between art and mental health*.
With wide-ranging topics, formats, and platforms, Sanctuary Space brings together students, artists, and mental health advocates through virtual events where they can find community and growth.
Designed to promote mental wellness through the arts, some of the outcomes of Sanctuary Space include:
reported that the workshop created awareness of mental health and mental illness
made a meaningful connection with others
left the event with new tools to support their own wellness
*We are always looking for creative ideas and volunteers to co-host a Sanctuary Space event with us. If you are interested in collaborating, please fill out this proposal form.
I enjoyed the space to sit down and create. I often don’t carve out the time for myself to just create so having a scheduled time to sit down and create with others was immensely helpful. I forgot how much I enjoy/need creating.

I feel like I found a likeminded community of people who genuinely care about bipolar disorder.
