MISSISSAUGA, Ont. – Studio.89 announces HeART & Soul, a night of exploring the powerful effects of art on our mind, body and soul. HeART & Soul aims to promote art therapy and showcase the transformative power of the arts to explore personal issues of mental health and wellness.
This family-friendly event offers 5 therapeutic workshops, including Paint Therapy with Anoop-Caur and Laughter Yoga with Deborah Carrick, and ends with musical performances by Andrew Maranta, Joe Measures, and Wilson + The Cast Aways.
Bird-friendly coffee, ethical treats, and locally curated art will be for sale throughout the evening, with funds going towards YTGA and Art With Impact’s 2016 programming.
“Art has the potential to transform lives by allowing for ideas of self-exploration that can create the path to healing, recovery, and transformation,” says event organizer, Aanchal Mogla. “It’s important that our friends and family know of alternatives to the traditional approach taken towards mental illness.”
The event runs from 6:00 – 10:30 PM and is expected to welcome over 100+ guests throughout the evening. Additional information and the workshop schedule can be found at: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/
