Spotlight On...Exploring Emotion Through Art
Thursday, August 12 at 7pm
Free webinar for learners of all ages
Photographer Olivia Hunter will be sharing her art work during a virtual conversation that focuses on mental health awareness using her personal struggle with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. The virtual talk will also speak about the use of photography as a healing and story telling device for those struggling with Mental Illness. During the past year, Hunter began and led two 3 month virtual photography programs at the National Alliance on Mental Illness. These courses focused on using photography as a way to speak about the struggles of COVID and share personal stories about ones’ own struggle with mental illness. This virtual event sponsored by the Homewood Science Center will focus broadly on mental illness and the use of art as a therapeutic means to share one’s own story.
