Lumiere Ball is a celebration of life, as well a breakdown of the stigma that surrounds all aspects of mental health. To remove stigma we must have acknowledgement, validation, confrontation and conversation.
On April 13th a collective of Bloomington creatives will host Lumiere Ball, an evening of art, performance, and conversation to raise funds and awareness for mental health. The ball will specifically benefit Mental Health America of Monroe County and Amethyst House.

Through vulnerability and conversation we can create connections and community. Join us!
