What’s Art Got To Do With It?Creative Works Studio | ON | 2013

“Shot over the course of a year, What’s Art Got To Do With It? follows five studio members as they devotedly prepare for an annual art show. In between painting canvasses, firing clay sculptures, shooting photographs, and composing songs, members share what it is like to cope with severe and persistent mental health challenges and addictions. A homegrown approach was used which gave the five members an opportunity to collaborate in the making of the film – being both behind and in front of the camera, as well as creating some of the musical score and contributing to the editing process.” (from Creative Works Studio website)
