Art Not Shame offers tools and programming for youth and other community members to express and address mental health challenges through collaborative artā€making and storytelling. We do this by hosting workshops in partnership with schools, local organizations, and established community health programs.

Art Not Shame workshops provide participants with a range of creative mediums to explore and share their ideas and experiences -- to create Art, Not Shame -- our name and our mission.

We are artists and educators.

We have deep roots in mental health advocacy, education, and community-making through art. 

We are also an online hub and resource centre, keeping the mental health conversation going and advocating for the value of art in creating spaces of acceptance, community, and transformation.
