'It's your space.' Therapy at Milwaukee Art Museum opens access to art for Black & Brown residents
Since March of 2022, the community organization, Black Space, and the Milwaukee Art Museum have partnered to provide free and accessible therapy tailored to Black and Brown communities in the Milwaukee area.
Black Space emerged in 2020 in the wake of the police murder of George Floyd, and in the early months of the COVID-19 pandemic. At that time, more focus was being put on the mental health of Black and Brown communities, highlighting concerns that existed for generations due to systemic racism.
Black Space provides free group therapeutic experiences for Black and Brown people and makes it accessible in an effort to destigmatize mental wellness. And offering these experiences in beautiful and safe spaces is paramount to the organization’s mission.
