Join us for our first “Heart-to-Heart at the Library” event, on Saturday, January 11th, from 1:00 - 4:00 pm at Sequoya Library.

These events allow space for open conversations about healthy relationships, communication, boundaries, and so much more. We will be watching movies or TV shows, with light snacks included. Afterwards, we will discuss and critique the relationships within the fims or shows. Our events are open to any adult (18+) with intellectual/developmental disabilities, and we encourage independence for attendees who do not require support staff/helpers. We hope to see you there!

ABOUT HEART CONSULTING

Few people with ID/DD are taught about issues like dating violence, increasing their risk of exploitation. Heart provides educational services to people with ID/DD to better understand topics like sexual harassment, consent, and domestic and sexual violence, to reduce risk and provide resources for reporting

UpStage Stigma

UpStage Stigma

Meeting Rooms 301 & 302
Saturday, Jan 11, 1:00pm to 3:00pm

UpStage Stigma is a project through which artists tell stories of mental illness and emotional struggle with performance art. Community members and mental health practitioners produce an event that uses art and social justice to cultivate appreciation for our shared human experiences. Together, we break the barriers of stigma that divide us through art, empathy, and advocacy.

This program is part of the series, "What We Are Going Through: Listening to Mental Illness," funded by a grant from Beyond the Page, Madison Community Foundation and the National Endowments for the Humanities.
