Art Cart Reception featuring Mindful MCs Live

Workman Arts & CAMH Foundation Gifts of Light

In Gamma SpaceGamma Gallery

Art Cart is a partnership between Workman Arts and Gifts of Light, which pairs established Workman Arts member artists with CAMH client services to provide peer-to-peer arts programming with professional materials.

The weekly workshops connect clients with artists in recovery through art instruction. The Art Cart program engages clients in a process of creation that not only provides recreational richness, expressive agency and quality of life, but allows clients to create pieces that are theirs to keep. The entire unit benefits from the personalization and beautification of clinical spaces.

Featuring work by participating CAMH programs: Early Psychosis Unit, General Forensic Units 1-2/1-3/2-5, Engaging Consumers in Opportunities for Recovery Education (ENCORE), Concurrent Addiction Inpatient Treatment Service (CAITS), Integrated Rehab Unit, Mood and Anxiety Inpatient Unit, Concurrent Outpatient Medical & Psychological Addiction Support Services (COMPASS), Learning Employment Advocacy Recreation Network (LEARN), and Complex Care and Recovery

Artist facilitators: Apanaki Temitayo M, Claro Cosco, Ella Mitchell, Hanan Hazime, Laura Shintani, Lorette Luzajic, Steven Lewis
