The Mad Couture Catwalk is a runway-style presentation of wearable artwork. It challenges norms and shift boundaries through expression of participating artists’ practices and their individual insights related to mental illness. The project engages dialogue about mental health, addiction and creativity. Each detail is carefully considered and crafted. Each moment of spectacle provides a unique perspective. Humour, heartache, pain, celebration, frustration, and acceptance will confront you through these works of art. Created in collaboration with artist-educator, Elena Soni, the Mad Couture Catwalk features twenty-eight works by ten Workman Arts artists.


Workman Arts is a proud partner of the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health. Workman Arts (WA) facilitates aspiring, emerging and established artists with mental illness and addiction issues to develop and refine their art form through its arts training programs, public performance/exhibit opportunities and partnering with other art organizations. As well, WA promotes a greater public understanding of mental illness and addiction through the creation, presentation and discussion of artistic media.
