Re-Igniting A.C.H.A. The Academy for Creative and Healing Arts – From Mental Illness to Mental Health

Keynote Speaker:  Junie Swadron

Guest Speakers Include:
Hazel Meredith, Executive Director, Mental Health Recovery Partners (South Vancouver Island)
Lawrence Cooper, Author, Poet Laureate in the Comox Valley, and Psychologist who knows both sides of the couch

A Variety of Outstanding Artist-Entertainers!

Creative Expression is not just a fun thing, it’s a Gift. It’s a Lifeline.  Please join us for an extraordinary evening of the creativity, stimulating talks, and a special viewing of the DVD Madness, Masks and Miracles, a play to dispel myths and stigmas about mental illness. https://junieswadron.com/madness-masks-and-miracles/

It’s about the madness, or the dark night of the soul that we all go through from time to time as we walk this earthly walk, the masks we wear in public to keep from being judged and ostracized – disguises that cover over the  heartbreak of a sick child or the fear when we lose our job or the grief  we carry when a loved one passes away. We say “fine, thank you” instead of “I’m scared. The play is also about the miracles that allow us to take off our masks and be real – be who we really are – beautiful, loving, kind, creative, alive and vulnerable all at the same time!  It is only when all of us feel safe enough to shed the masks and speak authentically from our hearts that the madness ends and the miracles begin. That’s what A.C.H.A. is all about!

Be Part of a New Movement for Mental Health! 

June 21st is a Startup and an opportunity to be part of a movement that will enhance the lives of countless people living with mental health challenges, their families and friends and you and me.  It’s a cultural, societal, situation. Not something to hide away. Mental Illness affects everyone. That it is why it is an integrated Centre FOR Everyone! The Academy for Creative and Healing Arts is a template for a HUB and for Cultural Centres worldwide that begins right here in Victoria, BC.
