Rendezvous with madness
Workman Arts presents the 31st annual Rendezvous with Madness Festival!
Rendezvous with Madness is the first and largest arts and mental health festival in the world. Using art as the entry point to illuminate and investigate the realities and mythologies surrounding mental illness and addiction, Rendezvous With Madness spotlights the human capacity for endurance in the face of great challenges. This year’s tagline “Mind the Gaps” considers gaps in infrastructure and the systematic “cracks” people, particularly those with lived experience of mental health and addiction, fall through. It is a call to think through what is missing and how things could be better.
As the holiday season approaches, we’re thrilled to announce that the 2023 Rise Holiday Marketplace is open for business!
This year, we’ve curated an online marketplace with 40+ diverse vendors from across Canada, offering everything from fitness to food products to accessories, art classes, clothing, skincare, and more.
Each vendor represents an inspiring Rise client like Mandy, owner of Calgary-based MYLK by ML, where you’ll discover fun, locally designed and hand-sewn matching accessories for your favourite dog and dog owner!
Rise receives no revenue from the marketplace. Every purchase you make directly supports a client's well-being and success.
