Embracing the Light: Suicide Awareness Performance #1

Join Mural Arts and First Person Arts for a powerful collaborative storytelling performance “Embracing the Light.” These shows will feature local storytellers with lived experience with suicide, including those who have experienced suicidal ideation, attempts, or lost loved ones.

We welcome everyone to attend this special event, whether or not you have been directly impacted by suicide. Our goal is to raise awareness and access to mental health resources in the greater Philadelphia region.

We have designed the performance to be a healing space, but we recognize that these stories may bring up raw feelings for audience members. Throughout each performance, we will have trained mental health experts available to offer assistance, and we will provide resources and information to anyone seeking support.

If you or a loved one are experiencing a suicidal crisis or emotional distress, call or text 988.
