Art is a great way to relieve stress (improving mental health), provide a healthy outlet for creativity, and a great alternative to promote over unhealthy behaviors like drug use and underage drinking. MIND ART ATL is a collaborative project to support, strengthen, and enhance Atlanta’s Latin community through art! Artists, counselors, designers, and social workers both from Latin America and the United States create unique, therapeutic experiences that spark creativity and crucial conversations related to mental health. The mission of this organization is to strengthen Latin families’ mental health through art-based activities and to empower Latino families to participate in civic and community-building activities that promote advocacy skills as individuals, families, and communities.
THIS SUNDAY, on August 27th, 2023, MIND ART ATL will be hosting a Latin Resource Fair at Energy Works ATL starting at 2:00PM. This fair offers the opportunity to participate in live-painting murals, music, gastronomy, weaving, mandalas, and more! There will be the creation of a mobile mural that will be used to advocate for better mental health supports for the community in Spring at the Atlanta Capitol!
Additionally, MIND ART ATL will be hosting both private and public graffiti workshops!
To support MIND ART ATL and their mission, feel free to spread the word of their mission and events, donate, host a graffiti workshop, or sponsor a graffiti workshop!
