Who we are & why we are

Welcome to the gallery site of Broken Light Collective. We are artists of all levels and abilities who are affected by mental illness. We create and we share our work for the therapeutic benefits to us, as well as others who may be struggling and feeling scared and alone. Together we can move from disconnected to collective.

Photo taken by first-time contributor Elise, a 19-year-old girl who is passionate about travel and helping people. She loves seeing new places and experiencing all the things a new country or culture has to offer. She believes that through helping other people through their difficulties you can learn so much about them and about yourself. She’s been very fortunate to be able to spend five months in Sucre, Bolivia working at different orphanages. Working there she witnessed how difficult some people have it, and she realized that even by doing little things you can make a huge difference in the lives of people who really need it.

About this photo: “Taken in Salar de Uyuni in Bolivia with my friends and I. This photo symbolizes how even through difficult times we can sometimes forget our worries and just jump into happiness, even if it’s just for the moment when you’re in the air.”
