We also feature an interview with Maya from Art-A-Thon.  The Art-A-Thon is a 12-hour art making extravaganza to change the world, and we’re looking for students who want to participate by creating an original work of art about mental health and wellness. Participants will arrive at 9:00am and will have 7 hours to create an original work of art, working in groups of 2-8 people in their preferred art form: theater, film, dance, music, photography or painting/visual art. Then that night, they will perform or present what they created in front of an audience at the Art-A-Thon Festival!  the performance is Nov 3rd 6-9pm at Smith Hall, Lewis and Clark College, Portland, OR
