“I painted. It made me feel better. I thought it would help others.”
PeaceLove began in 2009 when cousins Matt and Jeff set out to create a movement the mental health community could rally behind. A movement that encouraged creativity, self expression, community, and storytelling. In 2015, PeaceLove launched their CREATORS Program, training professionals to use the PeaceLove workshops with their populations. Since then, PeaceLove has impacted more than 65,000 lives. 2017 brought the launch of our first PeaceLove Expressive Art Studio located in the Danbury Child Guidance Clinic. Since then, FCA has built PeaceLove Studios in all 3 of our clinic sites and several of our IICAPS offices.
THE CREATORS PROGRAM & PeaceLove Workshops
The CREATORS Program equips frontline professionals to deliver our expressive arts curriculum to their communities. Facilitators work directly with individuals, families, and groups throughout the country to help them achieve improved mental health and better quality of life through artistic expression. After receiving training, CREATORS deliver ongoing workshops consisting of visual arts, storytelling, sound, and movement with the purpose of providing new resources and skills to achieve mental wellness. FCA has 7 trained CREATORS throughout the agency.
