The festival is a platform for artists to share their experiences, stories and help break the stigma surrounding mental health. Arts are a major form of expression, often saying things we don't know how to say, in ways we would never think of. Allow the arts to tell you stories, while raising awareness and funds for the Canadian Mental Health Association. Join us for 1, 2 or all 3 events as we open up, support one another and remember that we're not alone. FRIDAY NIGHT brings two powerful one acts. SATURDAY AFTERNOON brings our family friendly programming, so bring the kiddos! SATURDAY NIGHT brings a cabaret of song, dance and speech, which are definitely for the 18+ crowd.
