An exhibition focused on reducing the stigma of mental illness
We are thrilled to announce the Issaquah Schools Foundation Healthy Youth Initiative and artEAST are teaming up to present an art and social change exhibit to de-stigmatize mental illness and support our Issaquah community with The Incredible Intensity of Just Being Human. Pacific Northwest artists shed light on the effect mental illness has on individuals, loved ones and our society. Through community engagement, this exhibit creates a space where prejudices and fears meet compassion and humanity, to eliminate the shame and stigma of mental illness.
This fourteen-week progressive art exhibit and programs run from April through July in three Issaquah locations: artEAST, Swedish Medical Center and Blakely Hall. All are encouraged to attend opening receptions and upcoming events.
Upcoming Events include:
April 22nd, 6 – 8 pm: Soft opening, Blakely Hall Community Center
April 29th, 6 – 9 pm: Keynote Address, Issaquah Senior Center followed by the artist reception at artEAST
