Poets transformed the Inspiration to Movement dance studio into a stage for Central Ohio writers to perform work about their journeys through the mental health landscape.
Columbus-based poet Alexis-Rueal created this event to provide an artistic alternative to stigma and silence. The poems you’ll hear offer candid, evocative, sometimes funny, and — ultimately hopeful — depictions of living with a different kind of mental health.
Featured on the show are the evening’s host and MC, Vernell Bristow, and (in order of appearance), Zach Hannah, Christina Szuch, Sarah Trattner, Casey Krysztofik, T-Shirt, Gray Clark, and Alexis-Rueal.
Portions of the proceeds from this event supported Mental Health America of Franklin County. For more information about their services, please visit https://mhafc.org/.
