Artbeat Studio Inc. is a unique community based, peer directed program that provides social supports, working art studio and gallery space, and mentorship for individuals living with mental illness for the purpose of recovery and empowerment. Artbeat Studio is a non-profit registered charity committed to decreasing stigma and discrimination that coincides with mental illness and poverty through positive action, mental health education and advocacy.
Services are provided free of charge to participants. The intended beneficiaries include each participant artist, their caregivers, the local inner city community, and society as a whole.
Established in 2005, Artbeat Studio is the first of its kind in Manitoba and stems from one family’s personal experience with mental illness. Nigel Bart, founder and Studio Facilitator of Artbeat Studio, was diagnosed with schizophrenia at the age of 19 and has since been using various forms of art to help with recovery from the illness and the stigma that surrounds it.
