INTRODUCING, SANCTUARY SPACE!
Sanctuary Space—part of Art With Impact’s Continued Connections program—is a series of community events where folks 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:
made a meaningful connection with others who shared their values
left the event with new tools to support their own wellness
reported that the workshop created awareness of mental health and mental illness
*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, or contact us below!
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 loved being a part of the shared creative process. Bringing together creative/artistic people is healing and inspiring in & of itself! I look forward to more of these workshops.
