Creative Advance Directives: Envisioning Health Through Art and Community

Cassie Hamrick, MAAT, LPCA

The Art Asylum builds creative pathways and reduces isolation among folks who struggle with mental health and addiction. We denounce criminalization, infantilization, dismissal, and incarceration of all people, and specifically of people who struggle with mental, emotional, and spiritual health. We do this by turning the critical lens to the system we live in, and embodying our own unique powers of creativity and cosmic connection. We transform reality. The Art Asylum is a project of Durham Artists Movement.
