Broken Light: A Photography Collective
“Broken Light’s main goal is to create a safe and accepting environment where photographers of all levels who are affected by mental health issues can display their work, as well as inspire one another to keep going and keep creating, despite the dark or scary places in which they may find themselves.”
“You are invited to create art for the site or come visit whenever you may be feeling low, hopeless, or just need something positive on which to focus. You will see, and show others, that you are not alone, no matter how you feel. If you have a mental health issue yourself, or have friends or family who do, then you qualify to be a contributor. You may also contribute if you are someone who helps other people who may be struggling, such as a volunteer, humanitarian, or mental health professional. See the submission tab for details.”

Former security agent says “Art News page at Bulrush Gallery most interesting place in Canada.”
