Recently Renewed Arts & Healing Programming

Articulture recently completed a two year pilot program with Touchstone Mental Health—a nonprofit serving adults with severe and persistent mental illnesses. Our Arts and Healing classes offered a safe space to explore a creative outlet while being among others with similar experiences. This class was a source of community building and support as our students discovered the therapeutic benefits of creating art.

To cap off the program, Articulture hosted an art show entitled Healing Through Art: Living with Mental Illness on December 3, 2016 as part of the Seward Winter Frolic. The salon-style display showcased approximately 75 unique pieces created by the students of the Touchstone class over the two-year period. This powerful exhibit provided an intimate look into the complexities of mental illness.

Articulture is pleased to announce that Aroha Philanthropies has just renewed its support for this phenomenal partnership program with Touchstone Mental Health.

Per Aroha Philanthropopies’ most recent newsletter:

Aroha Philanthropies recently renewed its support for arts programming by Touchstone Mental Health, a Minneapolis-based provider of residential and support services to clients with severe mental illness. Touchstone offers an array of classes in art, music and movement that encourage creative expression, in part through an innovative partnership with Articulture, another Minneapolis-based organization.

Participants in the classes expressed their gratitude for the program and its impact on their lives. One wrote, “Without this class, my mind and my behavior would not be what it is today. I’m now more relaxed, confident, and at ease with who I am.” Another said, “[The art class] has helped me tremendously, in many different aspects of my life, not only in art but in being accepted.”
