Unspoken: Survivors Stories V

A virtual art exhibition in recognition of National Suicide Prevention Awareness Month

All the artists in this show have one thing in common. Their lives have been impacted by suicide and they responded to our call for art to raise awareness. They are incredibly strong, brave and willing to share their stories.

“This Art Exhibition, for me, is to share my story and to help any person that is going through a rough path that they’re not alone.” Judith Aram

Organized by Your Art Your Story, The Arizona Artists Guild and The Arizona Art Alliance, this virtual exhibit features works of art by artists from around the world. For the past 5 years, the exhibition partners have provided arts programs for suicide loss survivors at the Arizona Artists Guild in North Phoenix. These ongoing programs are free and open to anyone who has been affected by the trauma of suicide. (To learn more about upcoming workshops, click here.)

If you or someone you know needs help, call 988 for the National Suicide & Crisis Lifeline. You can also text HOME to 741741 for free, 24-hour support from the Crisis Text Line. Outside of the U.S., please visit the International Association for Suicide Prevention for a database of resources.

Art-Making Workshops

Art-making is integral to trauma recovery, loss, and grief.  Throughout September, Arizona Art Alliance and Your Art Your Story will host free art-making workshops. These workshops require no prior experience, and all materials will be provided. Space is limited.

Art-making connects us with one another and helps participants engage in self-care and build resilience. These workshops encourage creativity and mindfulness, grounding participants in the present moment to reduce stress and anxiety.
