Community Conversation and Panel Discussion - 'I Feel Like That'

  • Block Gallery (Raleigh Municipal Building) 222 West Hargett Street Raleigh, NC, 27601 United States (map)

May is Mental Health Awareness Month and we invite you to attend a second event that’s part of the programming that complements artist Telvin Wallace’s exhibition "I Feel Like That," currently on display at Block Gallery in downtown Raleigh.

On Thursday, May 30 at 6 p.m. there will be a Community Conversation and panel discussion about the topic of mental health. Representatives from the National Alliance on Mental Illness will be on hand as well as the artist and a licensed psychiatrist. The panel will look at the stigmas of mental health and offer tips on working through it. Space is limited so please RSVP.

The exhibition focuses on issues associated with mental health. Through portraiture, Wallace uses his direct relationship with the subject matter to embrace the contentious impression of mental illness and the place it holds in society. The exhibition is presented by the Office of Raleigh Arts and the Black On Black Project. It will be on view until May 31.

We hope you can join us for this event as we discuss this sensitive and prevalent topic. Learn more about "I Feel Like That" here and follow the hashtag #IFeelLikeTelvin.
