"An Eye on Mental Diversity"
The aim of this unveiling by Life Link members, is to begin a conversation by mentally diverse, artists, creatives and activists to work on an alternative linguistic and to open the door for dignity and destigmatizing of those who have been labeled “mentally ill”. We believe that we are more than our diagnosis and don’t accept common societal myths, culturally produced by mass media narratives.
We are a community with the desire to have a freedom of expression and it is through art that many of us find our humanity, it is where we find our voice. Today we are entering the public sphere, Creating the possibility of moving beyond bigotry, sharing our reality and relaying to the greater community that all of us are in some way on the mental health spectrum.
We hope that you feel touched and inspired by our expression. Also, we hope you fall in love with the art enough to take it home with you. All the proceeds from this go back to the artists and to support other Life Link art projects.
