Pop-Up Art Exhibit and Open Mic for All at Art Therapy Institute

  • Art Therapy Institute of NC 200 North Greensboro Street Carrboro, NC, 27510 United States (map)

Please join the Art Therapy Institute of North Carolina during the 2nd Friday Art Walk for an evening of open response, expression, and healing. This pop-up art show will feature any form of art created by local community members in response to social injustices here in NC and beyond. You will also have opportunities for art-making at the show and an open-mic for anyone who would like to share spoken word, music, poetry, dance, etc. 

At a time when so many are feeling helpless and disenfranchised, let's use the arts as a way to process, heal, and join hands in response as a community in action!

Any artists interested in sharing their art for the event may drop off their work at the ATI office on Thursday, October 13th between 9:00AM-6:00pm. Please bring the artwork ready to hang-* 

The Art Therapy Institute began in October of 2006. Master’s level art therapists bring art to the places people are every day; after school centers, day treatment programs, schools and domestic violence shelters. Enhancing the outreach they do as mental health clinicians improves access to mental health services in our community. By approaching mental health issues more globally and by sharing the healing components of the arts they are able to provide support for many people and prevent more intensive interventions.
