Artbeat Studio gratefully acknowledges the support of Kanisha Szekely’s film People of the Peg: Discover Winnipeg’s Art. $1,700 was raised in support of the Artbeat Studio Operating Fund.

People of the Peg: Discover Winnipeg’s Art is a three-part mini-documentary featuring three Winnipeg artists who have been affected by mental illness. Not only does this film focus on how each artist uses art as an outlet and coping mechanism, but it also emphasizes the importance of art.

Our goal is to reduce the stigma against mental illness, open a conversation about the effects of mental illness, and to inspire people to pursue art in any form.
