About the Willow
An inclusive community where all levels of artistic expression is celebrated.
Willow Arts Community provides an inspired environment where individuals with lived experience of mental illness/substance use are encouraged to explore creative expression.
WE ACHIEVE THIS BY:
- Presenting a variety of artistic opportunities in visual, performance, and literary disciplines.
- Providing opportunities to integrate with professionals in the Ontario arts community.
- Promoting a greater public understanding and reducing stigma of mental illness and substance use through the creation, presentation and discussion of artistic media.
- Encouraging exploration of vocational or creative employment in the arts.
