Acting Out! 2017
ACTING OUT Cleveland breaks down the stigmas and creates awareness of mental illness
and addiction through a four-day series of public art events, including film, visual art, music, comedy and panel discussion. Mental illness, addiction, and creative brilliance often go hand and hand, particularly when it comes to the arts. Derek Hess understands artists like himself are in a unique position to start dialogues about intimate universal struggles without as much fear of judgment.
