Avivo ArtWorks is a program within Avivo’s Community Support Program (CSP), which supports artists living with mental illness as they create art, build community, and reduce stigma. ArtWorks programming is founded on the principles of arts access, recovery, and social justice.
According to the National Endowment For The Arts, “When people engage in art, they themselves may change and ‘grow,’ they and their communities can become more vital, and the economic benefits to artists and the overall market can increase and accrue. Art contributes to and enriches the overall quality of life.”
Avivo ArtWorks activities include:
- Art classes
- Art groups
- Art kits
- Creative writing
- Community exhibitions
- Artist career support
- Leadership opportunities
- Community organizing
