"View from the Inside: Courage Journey," is a puppetry-based project. The project has built a beautiful body of work that gives voice to people seeking to build resiliency, create community and raise their sense of self worth. This artwork explores the experiences of Calgarians who struggle in different ways with mental wellness. The masks featured in this exhibit are a sampling of the 40 that were created. Some of them the artists consider as finished, others are ‘a work in progress’, a reflection of our lives. The subtitle “Courage Journey” came from participant’s responses as they went outside their comfort zones, and were vulnerable.
