"Art rises above and beyond the issues of the day. It reunited what has been rent asunder, not along national or religious lines, but along individual, human ones. It heals, redefines goals, and strengthens the resolve to move on, to rebuild, to reconstruct. However obtuse human behaviour is in other arenas, art, if not suborned, can clarify, put into perspective and re-inspire."
Welcome to Spark of Brilliance - Recovery through the Arts!
Spark of Brilliance is a community-based mental health initiative that promotes healing through the arts. Workshops are open to people experiencing mental health issues and their supportive allies including family members, friends, mental health workers, etc. If you are interested in learning more or participating, please click on the "contact" button in the menu for more information.
"The artist must create a spark before he can make a fire and before art is born, the artist must be ready to be consumed by the fire of his own creation."
In conjunction with the new initiative we are offering this new section where children and families living with autism and developmental challenges will have the opportunity to spotlight their gifts and talents and connect with others with similar experiences.
Are you interested in being a participant? Would you like to volunteer for upcoming Spark of Brilliance events? Do you have a talent you would like to share as a mentor? Would you like to donate to Spark of Brilliance?
Trellis is committed to a service philosophy built on hope and assisting people with developmental and mental health disabilities to not only cope successfully with the challenges they face, but to lead lives filled with meaning and promise.
