Discussion Series: Mental Health Through Historic Writings
February 24, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
The Brick Store Museum is embarking on a new interpretation of its historic collections: how archival letters of former citizens can be used to highlight the importance of mental health. The Museum is partnering with the Maine Humanities Council to present a unique discussion series, titled “I Can Sympathize with You in the Feeling,” running one Wednesday a month between February and April. Thanks to the important support of the Maine Humanities Council,
registration is free and open to the public, though limited to 15.
The series of virtual discussions (via Zoom) will be grounded in letters and journals from the Brick Store Museum’s collection, and will take place at 6:00pm on February 24, March 24, and April 21. Each session will feature three archival texts as well as a companion text, with discussion led by trained facilitators Dr. Libby Bischof and Kartika Wright.
Participation is free and all materials are provided. To register, please contact Cynthia Walker at [email protected] or (207)985-4802.
This program is a part of the Museum’s “Year of Stories,” which places special focus on what makes us all human: stories and the various ways we can tell them. Throughout the year, the Museum will be presenting programs, recording oral histories, and celebrating the community through events that highlight people (past and present) and their experiences.
