Fourth Annual Songs to Recovery Concert and Art Show
On Saturday, September 17th, Riverwalk Wellness Centres, a non profit mental health agency based out of Aurora, hosted our fourth annual Songs to Recovery concert and art show! The event involved performances by local bands and musical artists, as well as a showcase of art curated from our Expressive and Therapeutic Arts program. All ticket proceeds went towards helping us keep on providing FREE arts-based programming in our community.
Riverwalk offers free expressive and therapeutic arts programs to people in York Region. If you are dealing with a mental health issue (including addictions or eating disorders) and are interested in finding out how art can play a part in your recovery, visit this link http://www.edoyr.com/expressive-and-therapeutic-art/ or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We were amazed with the wonderfully talented performers who all volunteered their time to share their music with us for a good cause. We had a great variety this year, everything from progressive rock to a violin duet. We thank all of the wonderful musicians who came out to support Riverwalk:
Naomi Hazlett, the Jay Dee Band, Barbara Dunlop and Stephanie Etherington, Matt Gerber, The New Commuters, Michelle Scott, and Ravyn Red.
Special thanks go out Ravyn Red for sharing their gear, Mel for helping organize the event, and Tyler for being our amazing stage tech and sound guy.
We'll see you again next year!
