Show me a person with mental illness and I’ll show you a person with mental illness. Show me an artist with mental illness and I’ll show you an artist.”

Melissa Bender, Artist, Member of Workman Arts

For over twenty-five years, Workman Arts has empowered aspiring, emerging and established artists with mental illness and addiction issues to develop and refine their art practice through multifaceted arts training programs and public performance/exhibition opportunities in five disciplines: music, theatre, visual, literary and media arts. Sustaining excellence in programming, research, and partnering with other arts organizations, Workman Arts has entertained audiences and challenged perceptions about mental illness and addiction through presentation and discussion of diverse and thought provoking programs.
