“Singing My Way Through: Creativity as a Method of Healing”

This presentation combines Meg Hutchinson’s personal story with a musical performance of her original songs. She began writing songs as a teenager, during the same time that she began to struggle with early symptoms of Bipolar I. In the years since, Meg has released nine albums and become a nationally touring artist. Meg discusses how poetry and music were her primary coping mechanism for years and how creativity remains central to her healing process to this day. The format is 70 minutes direct delivery with additional time for Q&A. (This program requires a professional sound system. Tech rider available upon request.)
