Our Annual Event Peace of Mind Storytellers

PeaceLove’s Annual Storytelling Event

Thursday, May 16 at Rhode Island College, Providence RI

Our annual Peace of Mind Storytellers event inspires conversations of acceptance, understanding, and hope. We bring together leaders and newcomers to share their mental health stories and celebrate the work they are doing to help create peace of mind in the world. Our Storytellers are poets, chefs, educators, doctors, students, actors, visual artists, producers, musicians, neuroscientists, photographers, business leaders, advocates, performance artists, entrepreneurs, dancers, and athletes, to name a few.
