Founded in 1999 by Judith Rosenberg, Spark of Brilliance is a peer-driven, community-based mental health
initiative that provides creative experiences that foster healing and recovery through the arts.

Workshops take place in a safe, welcoming environment and are open to adults living with mental health and/or addictions issues. Workshops are available in Guelph and Kitchener and are offered at no cost to participants.

Why is Art Important in Recovery?
Connecting or reconnecting with the healing power of the arts can and does have positive benefits for self-esteem, self-fulfillment, and quality of life. When people participate in group creative activities, they:

  • Become more optimistic, hopeful, and confident
  • Experience less boredom, anxiety, loneliness and isolation
  • Are better able to let go of tension and reduce stress
  • Are better able to communicate their emotions and concerns
