Making a Scene is a collective project that explores questions of visibility, self-expression, and mental illness. Over many months, the artists of Creative Works Studio worked together to build a project that combined costuming and photography. The costumes demonstrated something they wanted to express, or a way they wanted to be seen.

Creative Works Studio is an arts-based occupational therapy program that serves people who are struggling with persistent mental health and addiction issues.
