Mental health is increasingly part of public debate, but in many cultures and contexts it still carries stigma and shame. No strangers to mental illness, our panelists invite you to share an important conversation about how we live with mental illness as artists, and how we create art about mental health.

Kesehatan mental terus menjadi bagian dalam perdebatan publik, tetapi dalam banyak budaya dan konteks, hal tersebut masih kerap menimbulkan stigma dan rasa malu. Tidak asing dengan penyakit mental, panelis kami mengajak Anda untuk berbagi perbincangan penting mengenai bagaimana kita hidup dengan penyakit mental sebagai seniman, dan bagaimana kita menciptakan seni mengenai kesehatan mental.
