Yes, and… the conversation continues kicks off with a gallery opening to introduce a month of events. This conversation will be centered around building healthy relationships after traumatic experiences. The aim is to break through social stigmas around mental health. It focuses on the healing process that individuals who experienced PTSD-inducing events undergo. This open gallery event engages the community to explore and heal. The show features work from artist and curator Anna Failla, and others like Ren Rathbone, about topics such as mental health, sexual assault, consent, and healing after trauma.
