Mental health. It’s become a buzz word lately. We know it’s important, and yet somehow it seems elusive. How do you access it, assess it, change it? How is your mental health? How do you know?
VIEW From the Inside (VIEW) is a puppetry-based workshop that encourages discussion about mental wellness. Through the creation, exhibition and performance of a self-reflective mask-body puppet, participants develop community, foster resiliency and gain a voice for their stories.
We Need Your Help. Each session of VIEW is 100% funded by donations, sponsorships, and grants. Your support will create opportunities for people to experience improved mental health and community connection by taking part in VIEW without barrier.
Supplies and the time of professional art facilitators are essential to the success of each workshop, creating the environment for successful engagement. VIEW workshops can be tailored for any group—seniors with dementia, youth who are new to Canada, people experiencing homelessness or domestic violence, and foster children to name a few. One 8-week session costs $5,000, and every donation or sponsorship commitment to VIEW contributes to these costs.
