AWI Sanctuary Space presents: Breaking Up with Trauma
An ongoing Continued Connections program that creates virtual spaces for our global community to connect on topics at the intersection of art and mental health.
In this AWI Sanctuary Space event: “Breaking Up With Trauma”, we were joined by mental health advocates and artists, Janette Valenzo and Danielle Pinals. Together we explored the trope of artists needing trauma and suffering to create their best art. Together, we explored what may be fueling this belief, and share more sustainable ways we can create in support of our mental health.
