December 4th, 2012     by Julia Horel     Comments

Room is a consumer-survivor initiative welcome 16- to 30-year-old women and trans folks who identify as and are marginalized by their history of mental illness and/or addiction.

Our focus is on the inspiring and self-soothing qualities of art and the hoped-for experience of discovering, capturing and regaining the powerful concept of beauty in both the simple and awesome in the everyday life of a woman.

Wednesdays - 2:00 to 4:00pm December 5th to January 30th Fort York Food Bank 797 Dundas Street West (Dundas/Bathurst)
