Research shows that creating art relieves stress, encourages creative thinking and brain activity, and boosts self-esteem. For many of the artists whose work we display, art is their livelihood and a huge part of their personal recovery, mental health, and wellness.
Art Against Stigma brings together clients, artists, staff & volunteers for a truly special display of creativity!
Each year, as part of the Eastside Culture Crawl, we display over 1,000 works of art from artists across vancouver with lived experience of mental illness. Our annual art show is called Art Against Stigma. 100% of sales go to the artists!
