Call for Submissions: Mental Health Awareness Month Art Show
Call for Submissions: Connecting Through Art
A Mental Health Month Art Show
Alaska Behavioral Health, NAMI – Anchorage, and Out North are teaming up to host an art show in the month of May in celebration of Mental Health Month.
We value the power that comes with sharing one’s lived experiences and the connections that can be made in doing so. We also recognize that sharing an experience doesn’t always require words. This is why we are so excited to provide an opportunity for Alaskans to visually share their experiences with mental health and to connect through art.
We will host both an online “virtual art show” as well as a physical show at the Jewel Lake Kaladi Brothers in Anchorage for the whole month of May.
This year, artists have the choice of submitting high quality photographs of their work, to be included only in our on-line virtual show, or submitting work physically to all Alaska Behavioral Health locations in Anchorage and Fairbanks for consideration of inclusion in our in-person shows.
For more information about submitting pieces for the show, please visit https://alaskabehavioralhealth.org/virtual-art-show/
