Erasing the Distance: Countering Stigma Through Storytelling

We welcome all to engage with true stories from people whose lives have been directly impacted by issues of mental health, including those informed by interactions with various social, political and cultural systems. Through an ensemble of performances from Erasing the Distance, this event aims to disrupt stigma and spark dialogue with the audience.

Erasing the Distance is a non-profit arts organization based in Chicago that uses the power of performance to disarm stigma, spark dialogue, educate, and promote healing surrounding issues of mental health.

FREE admission and refreshments.
