HEART is a month-long virtual celebration illuminating the intersection of women, mental health, and art! HEART takes place the entire month of May in celebration of Mental Health Awareness Month. This month-long virtual-art-gallery event and mini-event series will feature women artists including visual artists, musicians, filmmakers, dancers, comedians, street artists, and more! HEART will explore challenges unique to women in our community while working to reduce the stigma of mental illness and celebrating stories of hope and resilience.
This registration is for the MAY 19 film screening of “Who Am I To Stop It” and discussion with filmmaker Cheryl Green. You will be able to view the film for 14 days. To ensure this event is accessible for all, the film will be provided with closed captioning and audio descriptions.
“Who Am I To Stop It” is a documentary about the traumatic brain injury community made by a filmmaker with disabilities from brain injury. It follows three artists as they navigate social isolation, stigma, and rebuilding their identities. They practice the arts to reconnect to their own sense of self-pride and to their larger communities. The film is 86 minutes, and the “talk-back” discussion with the filmmaker follows.
