art of wellbeing
Mental Health Connecticut’s Annual Fundraiser, the Art of Wellbeing: Truth be Told will take place on Friday, May 1, 2020 at Infinity Music Hall Hartford to kick off Mental Health Awareness Month.
The Art of Wellbeing explores the infinite ways in which the arts play a powerful role in health and wellness. Each year, Mental Health Connecticut (MHC) highlights artists who channel their creative energy to better themselves and those around them.
This upcoming May, we are excited to work with Fable The Poet, pictured left, as we explore storytelling at the Art of Wellbeing: Truth be Told. As a nationally touring artist, Fable is highly noted for his work with youth; spreading mental health awareness using his personal stories to spread a much needed message: “At times, we all feel fragile. We are all paper boats entertaining the waves of life.”
Fable will be joined by graduates of MHC’s Write On! program. Through Write On!, participants use the power of storytelling to heal hearts and change minds. Proceeds from this event will help support Write On! and MHC. The Art of Wellbeing promises to be an exciting and inspiring evening and our success depends on your support!
Registration is now open! Tickets are $100 per person. Tables of 6 are available to be reserved. ASL interpreting will be provided for this event.
meet our storytellers
Thanks to the generous support of our Performance Sponsor, Lockton, we are proud to have Fable The Poet and three of our alumni from MHC’s Write On! program: Lauren, Freddy, and Kim as our four talented storytellers on May 1. Below are videos from each performer. These stories are raw, personal, and may not be suitable for all audiences.
Each year, the generosity of Mental Health Connecticut’s Art of Wellbeing sponsors makes it possible for this event to bring our statewide community together for an evening of understanding, connection, enlightenment, and entertainment. At the Art of Wellbeing: Truth be Told, we will explore the art of storytelling through artists with lived experience of trauma and/or mental health conditions. Help these stories come to light by becoming a sponsor today!
