Event Description

Join us as we celebrate the value of creative expression in recovery from mental illness.

Fellowship Place is pleased to invite the general public to the agency’s 2nd Annual Expressive Arts Festival, supported by the City of New Haven Mayor’s Community Arts Grants Program, and held as part of the New Haven community’s celebration of “May is Mental Health Awareness Month”.

The event is scheduled for May 4, 2017, at 5:00 pm, on Fellowship Place’s campus, located at 441 Elm Street in New Haven. Free and open to the public, this very unique event will feature exhibits of original artwork, live musical performances, and live poetry readings, created and performed by our clients. Refreshments presented by Fellowship Place’s Kitchen will highlight the talents of our Supported Employment program’s Food Services Training. Held as part of the New Haven community’s celebration of “May is Mental Health Awareness Month”, Fellowship Place sees this event as a unique opportunity to promote the artistic talents of participants in our agency’s Expressive Arts program, while creating awareness in helping to reduce the stigma associated with mental illness in our community.  The expressive arts, including visual arts, writing, and music groups, are used to help program participants express their creativity, build self-confidence, and develop coping skills.  

We are also thrilled to partner with The South Central Connecticut Regional Mental Health Board and MINDMAP CT. The South Central Connecticut Regional Mental Health Board will host an information table on resources and services available throughout Connecticut. MindMap CT will host an information table on the early detection and treatment of psychotic disorders.

Fellowship Place seeks to help adults with mental illness lead more meaningful, fulfilling and healthy lives by offering resources, education, and opportunity.  The agency provides a wide range of services, including supportive counseling and case management, supported housing, job training and career development services, social & physical recreation programs, expressive arts therapy, and skill building groups.  More than 750 people a year are served.

Advance reservations for the Expressive Arts Festival may be made by contacting Gina Papelo at 203-401-4227 or  gpapelo@fellowshipplace.org.

An Open Streets Family Reunion: Reflections from the 2018 Open Streets Summit

By Ryan O’Connor, Director of Programs, 8 80 Cities Recently 8 80 Cities wrote a blog post about open streets being a labour of love.

“It Has To Start With the Children”: Q&A With Juanita Woods

Rubinger Fellow Juanita Woods is a community development practitioner and city council member in Monroe, LA who specializes in helping people skill up to take on living-wage jobs with local employers. She spoke with LISC about her fellowship project to provide apprenticeships for young people, the challenges of wealth-building in historically underserved communities, and the inspiration she gets from empowering youth on their life journeys.

The Long Journey to a Healing Home

In honor of Veterans Day this year, we are highlighting Perry Point Veterans Village, an extraordinary supportive housing community for homeless vets created by HELP USA in tandem with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, NEF and many other dedicated partners. The development was 10 years in the making and involved a veritable high-wire act of aligning bureaucracies and funding sources and overcoming political opposition. The result is worth the struggle: 75 safe, affordable homes for veterans who'd been surviving on the streets and now have a bona fide new lease on life.

From Recidivism to Rebuilding Lives: Q&A With Kelly Orians

Kelly Orians is an attorney, a 2019 Rubinger Fellow and the co-director of the First 72+, a ground-breaking New Orleans re-entry program for people returning from incarceration. Orians spoke with LISC about the state of criminal justice in Louisiana, the challenges and successes her clients experience, and how her organization is helping lift the burden of entrenched bureaucracy and predatory debt that keeps so many people from gaining real freedom after release.
