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 contributor Annie, a woman who lives with depression, PTSD, anxiety and dissociation. Annie has survived a suicide attempt. Art, music, reading, writing, yoga, meditation and walking help when weather permits. Her feline companion Rumi is her best friend.

About this photo: “I hope that one day I will live far away from this place of cement, glass and steel. A cold environment where nothing seems real saying, ‘Do not touch’.

    Space is real. Space to fall and rebound. Look outside, inside. There’s lots of it.

    Water, stories, the body, all the things we do, are mediums that hide and show what’s hidden. Rumi
