Thursday, July 28th @ 12-1:30 PM PT / 3-4:30 PM ET [Duration: 90 minutes]

Join us as we discuss the pains and gains of being Black-n-Bipolar at the intersection of other identities. Together we will cultivate relationships of trust, and build a safe space to be our authentic self. We invite you to share your stories and lived experience being Black-n-Bipolar with each other in order to feel seen, heard, and witnessed. Participants will also have an opportunity to choose a medium or mix mediums (theater, dance, song, poem, etc.) in groups to write a collective narrative that has a healing element.

Note for participation: Workshop for Black folx who identify along the bipolar spectrum
