We want you to be a part of this years traveling art project tour. Create a pair of sneakers that tells your story of what it is like to spend a day in your shoes as a survivor. If you are a suicide loss survivor, a person with thoughts of suicide, have attempted or work within the field we invite you to register for one of the free sponsored workshops. Help us stop the stigma. Public art tour begins in August with the final reception held for all artists and the public at Barnes & Noble Vanderbilt.

Healing Art – Lived Experience
These 3 hour workshops are for anyone who has lived with the experience of suicidal thoughts or behaviors. YHOA is a safe place where others who can relate to thoughts of suicide come without shame or fear of judgment to create and express without having to use your words. A place where you will be met with the peer support of “me too”.
NO ART EXPERIENCE IS NEEDED AT ALL
(A minimum of 4 participants is required to hold workshop)
