VANCOUVER — A diverse group of Vancouver artists will combine their talents for an evening of creative outpouring in support of mental wellness at the 2nd Annual Stand Up and Dance II event on October 8. Featuring painters, musicians, fashion designers and, of course, dancers, the event's goal is to shed light on the positive impact creativity and movement have on our mental well-being when living with the trauma of sexual violence, bullying, and stress.
A number of years back, I landed in California for a corporate event where I was to be a VIP guest at. Comfortable and excited for what the weekend was going to bring, I got a call while collecting my luggage from one of the company execs asking me to come directly to the office. I was really looking forward to getting a chance to see my colleagues and friends prior to the event so I gathered my things, got my rental car and headed to the office in Orange County.
