2021 Art of Hope Artists Roundtable

In partnership with Mandie Kolkman of Art to Heart, Mental Health America of Northeast Indiana hosted a roundtable discussion with three participating artists, Sarah Brown, Neal Dake, and Pam Gielow. All three rely on artistic expression to cope with life challenges and process their emotions.

During the roundtable, everyone discussed the importance of art in their lives and demonstrated vulnerability by sharing their personal experiences.

Thank you to Access Fort Wayne, the Multimedia Center of the Allen County Public Library, for providing studio space for the roundtable and recording the discussion.
