4 Plus 4 Equals Public Opening
February 9, 2014
When 4 Plus 4 Equals, an Austin-based visual art project and community conversation series, sought our help in bringing awareness to the community and provoking conversation about mental health, we decided to host an evening of visual art, audio documentary, and dialogue at Olive & June.
During this free event, attendees were invited to meet and engage with some of the artists and mental health recovery peers involved in the project. To enhance the experience, we displayed original artwork made together by the artists and peers, set up four audio stations so that attendees could listen to the peers speak about their journey, provided light appetizers, and secured access to a cash bar.
4 plus 4 equals is a collaborative endeavor by HATCH, Via Hope, and Fusebox. The three partner’s goal for this event was that by openly distributing the posters and audio, members from the community would engage in more open and honest conversation about mental health.
"I love how the [4 Plus 4 Equals] project leveled people so that it was human-to-human, not ill person and artist."
