This Is Art | This is Public Health
Friday, May 24th, 2019
6 p.m. to 9 p.m.
This is Art |This is Public Health is a unique collaborative initiative between Mecklenburg County Public Health, Bree Stallings – Artist and local youth. This year we partnered with youth from Time Out Youth, QC Family Tree, Alianza, and Teen Health Connection.
Youth are engaged in Real Talk |Real Action conversations explicitly designed to inform youth about crucial public health issues affecting them and their communities. Conversations are inspired learning opportunities led by public health subject matter experts. Topics covered include Healthy Food Security, Tobacco Use, Teen Dating Violence, Trauma and Resilience, Addiction and Substance Use, Mental Health, and Suicide Prevention.
After each Real Talk |Real Action conversation, Bree Stallings leads the youth in creatively responding to prompts to produce artwork central to the public health themes of the conversations. The initiative concludes with an art exhibition reflecting the youth narratives of what ignited and inspired them from Real Talk |Real Action conversations.
The 2019 exhibition is at May 24th at 6 p.m. at Camp North End. The exhibition is part of Fridays at Camp North End.

Camp North End is a “new old” place. Ford Motor Company built it in 1924 and manufactured Model T and Model A automobiles there. After that it was used by the U.S. Army as a missile assembly and storage space. It’s got an interesting history.
I had a chance to visit and take some pictures. Read more about it here and look at some pictures.
Now it’s being developed by ATCO for offices, event space, retail, artist studios and public gathering space, all the while preserving the historical space.
