About this event

“A pandemic, nationwide protests and uprisings, a presidential election, and cascading challenges face individuals and communities across the globe… many of us have struggled with our mental health. Despite the prevalence and normalcy of these feelings and experiences, stigma continues to follow mental illness. Using a combination of personal experience and research into the complex world of mental health, Penn State Professor of Theatre Dr. William J. Doan focuses on the intersections of art, science, and health.”

All ages are invited to join facilitators Marisa Vicere, President and founder of the Jana Marie Foundation, Medora Ebersole, Education and Community Programs Manager of Center for the Performing Arts, Dr. Bill Doan, Artist,  and the HUB-Robeson Galleries for a virtual tour of The Anxiety Project, live reading of Inside Anxiety and Depression, and meditative drawing prompts for your mental health and wellbeing. All who are ready to explore the connection between art and well-being are welcome.
