Announcing the Seventh in the Paueru Gai Dialogues series: On Mental Health and Art

Saturday September 18 1:00 PM PDT / 4:00 PM EDT

FREE online event, registration required

We are excited to announce the next in the Paueru Gai Dialogues series! Guest host Sue Arai and panellists River Blondin Burt, Leanne Toshiko Simpson, and Jotika Chaudhary Samant will discuss mental health and art in this live, online event.

Art as activism and relational connection to place have been threads throughout the Paueru Gai Dialogues, a pandemic series creating space for sticky issues and community building. Among other questions generated, participants have asked how youth are feeling about themselves; and what tools we might have to address intergenerational trauma and day-to-day discrimination.
