Artreach Presents: A Mixed Bag

Artreach, Inc. presents a performance for Mental Health Month on Monday, May 14, at 6 pm in the Millie and Martin Shapiro Community Room at Otis Library.  Artreach, Inc. is a Norwich-based nonprofit Mental Health/Arts agency.

“A Mixed Bag” is mental health-themed comedy, music and poetry written and performed by people who understand mental health issues from the inside. This evening will be lighthearted, fun, community building and (maybe even) educational. The event is free and open to the public.  Refreshments will be served.


After “A Mixed Bag,” there will be an opportunity to talk to the performers about the impact Artreach activities have on their lives. They will explain how engaging in the performing arts and the rehearsal process leading up to a show offers the opportunity to build self-esteem; increase artistic skill; make friends; gain motivation; and reduce isolation. The opportunity to perform for the community helps demystify "mental illness" (whatever that is!) and blur the line between "them" and "us."
