15th annual mental health event transforms park into art exhibit

Strathcona Park will be transformed by the Mental Illness Caregivers Association of Canada (MICA) into an art and artisanal exhibition on Aug. 8, featuring the work of over 70 artisans, from local honey producers to painters.

The event, which is in its 15th year will include a barbeque and a silent auction, with proceeds going towards programs MICA runs for those experiencing mental illness.

Rosemary Scragg, a University of Ottawa alumnus, started the event while volunteering with the Schizophrenia Society of Ontario (SSO) after a close friend committed suicide. The Society was looking for fundraising ideas and, as an artist herself, Scragg came up with the art in the park event.
