Austin Artists and People Living With Mental Illness Co-create Art Works to Shift Perceptions About Mental Health Through 4 Plus 4 Equals Project
Date:12/2/2013

Austin, TX (PRWEB) December 02, 2013

HATCH, Via Hope, and Fusebox are launching a citywide visual art project and community conversation series entitled 4 Plus 4 Equals. Designed to raise public awareness and spark conversation about mental health, the project kicks off with an opening reception on December 3rd at the Hyatt Regency in Austin. The launch event will feature the unveiling of original artworks, audio documentaries, and an intimate conversation with participating artists and peers.

At the heart of the project is a series of partnerships between visual artists and people in mental health recovery (peers). Working in pairs, these teams co-created original poster designs intended to inspire, motivate, and provoke engagement with the larger Austin community around mental health.

“4 Plus 4 Equals involves Austin’s vibrant creative sector in a project to inspire public engagement on a challenging social issue in ways that facts alone cannot,” says Ann Beeson, Founder of HATCH and Executive Director of the Center for Public Policy Priorities. “Our hope is that through the artistic collaborations and community conversations we can begin to shed new light on experiences that are often misunderstood."

The posters will be distributed throughout the city in coffee shops, restaurants, businesses, shops, and various public spaces. Each poster is accompanied by a short audio-documentary offering an intimate glimpse into the peer’s own lived experience.

A three-part series of community dialogues, which will begin after the December 3rd launch, will provide an opportunity for the general public to engage directly in the project and learn more about mental health as a social change issue.

The 4 Plus 4 Equals’ opening reception falls on the eve of the
