Meets Weekly

Expressive Arts Café

As the newest project launched in June 2020, the virtual Expressive Arts Café is a series of Zoom meetings featuring different topics ranging from poetry to musical interpretations, from vision boards to handmade crafts. You’ll be served espresso first every visit – a two-minute journaling response that you may or may not share. The Daily Special follows. We will always prepare you for your dining experience with knowledge of the planned workshop and theme. Our workshops include art-journaling, sharing an open mic, storytelling and more. Finally, before you exit, we’ll leave you with a little mint of gratitude to carry you through the rest of your day. All courteous friends are welcome, and creativity is not required! Email [email protected] to get on our notice list!

Happy Fall and welcome back to your NAMI NJ Expressive Arts Café. This Café season we will be focusing on the impact the Arts can make on our healing journeys, mental health in particular. To assist us on this quest, we’ve invited four artists of differing and/or multi-disciplines to share the path the Arts opened up for them in their healing process.

This month, for our re-opening Café, in light of our season’s quest, we thought we’d open up the mic with an Arts Healing Journey theme. So, feel free to just respond to the theme when you come, bring artwork you’d like to share of any type (visual, crafts, writing) around the theme, bring a piece that doesn’t relate to the theme, or just come to relax and enjoy the local art scene at the Café.

We will be sharing in 2 – 3 minute increments dependent upon mic demand. So join us on Monday, October 23, at 6 p.m. ET for the Arts Healing Journey Open Mic Café. We’ll be exhibiting local art in a relaxed atmosphere and there will be a surprise unveiling that you must come to this Café to enjoy.
