Event description
A group art exhibition exploring mental health, trauma, and recovery to benefit the North Brooklyn Coalition Against Family Violence.

About this Event

A Burden To Bare is a group art exhibition to benefit the fight against sexual violence and mental health stigma. The show features over twenty bold artists committed to encouraging more open and honest dialogue about the realities of mental health, trauma, sexual violence, and recovery. By bringing together artists and the community, we aim to empower each person to contribute to and engage in spaces that harbor safety, vulnerability, and compassionate connection through creative expression.

The producers of A Burden To Bare: Alissa Milano, Kaitlyn Power, and Venn Bushwick hold community work and engagement at the core of their values. As a result, all proceeds and 10% of art sales will be donated to The North Brooklyn Coalition Against Family Violence. Significant efforts have been made in the planning process to benefit the community local to Brooklyn, NY.

Please join us for a night of creative expression, activism, and collective healing.
