Eastern Kentucky University Suicide Awareness and Focus on Education (EKU SAFE) is hosting “Artvention” on Thursday, September 13, beginning at 4 p.m. in Noel Studio.

“Artvention” is to help honor World Suicide Prevention Day. The event focuses on individuals whose lives were affected by suicide – either as suicide attempt survivors or those whose lives were lost due to suicide.

The event brings awareness to the issue of suicide, but also showcases artwork to help those attending express the pain of suffering, loss and change and understand the problem. “Artvention” is open to anyone, but they must register by contacting Judy van de Venne at judy.vandevenne@eku.edu. The first 50 attendees to register will receive “Artvention” t-shirts.
