EVENT POSTER

Join Creative Resilient Youth (CRY) for a weekend of art and events that explore and celebrate self-expression, vulnerability, and lived experiences. Over the past five months, seven Philly teens have to come together to respond to gaps in intergenerational dialogue and the lack of mental health care resources in schools.

Through weekly meetings at Slought Foundation and Culture Work, teens worked with their peers and Creative Resilient Collective adult facilitators to develop personal and collective projects. Each meeting enabled creative exchange, collective consensus building, and individual reflection. The program centered community organizing and project management skills required to work socially on a complex topic, while making public art pieces.

CRY teens will hold their culminating exhibition on May 10-12, 2019 at Little Berlin Annex Gallery. Follow their work on Instagram.

Initiated by the Creative Resilience Collective, CRY is supported by Slought and the Velocity Fund–a re-granting initiative of the Andy Warhol Foundation administered in Philadelphia by Tyler School of Art at Temple University.

Special thanks to Greensgrow Farms, Jig-Bee Flower Farm, Butcher's Sew Shop, and @lostbreadco and anonymous donors for supporting this event

OUR MISSION

Creative Resilience Collective is a health justice organization based in Philadelphia. We partner with underserved communities and advocates looking to combat stigma and improve access to self-determined mental health care.

We believe our collective agency can create positive change in care systems, leading to more equitable futures. We do this through educational workshops, study groups, critical writing, public art, youth programs, and the building of local tools and resources to shape the evolution of dignified care.
