The second event of the Art of Evocation series features singer-songwriters who have found healing by creating art in the midst of mental health struggles. The night will explore ways in which we can all use art to reach a deeper understanding of our problems, to create a space for others who are struggling to feel less alone, and to find healing through the act of creation. More information at The Art of Evocation Series encourages discussion on relevant topics from Christian perspectives and explores the ways in which art can further the conversation.

Date: October 11, 2019
