NAMI Western Carolina is partnering with The Ariadne Theater Project to offer eight free workshops in theater arts and storytelling for anyone who has been affected by mental illness, including family and mental health professionals. The workshops will run Wednesdays from June 12 to July 31, 6:00 to 8:00 p.m., in UNC-Asheville’s New Hall Room 103. Individuals can participate one evening or come for all eight sessions. Griffin Payne, the Project’s founder, is a thrilling poet, performer, and educator. He’s invested in sharing the tools of expression that helped save his life when he experienced mental illness. The Project’s aim is to help people explore and learn to share their stories, creating empowerment and visibility for a community that is often voiceless and invisible.
