On its third annual exhibit at Sining Kamalig, Boxless Society, a mental health support group for artists and their caregivers, presents their truth in both foreign and familiar colors they’ve always desired to unravel boldly in Despite My Being _______, I Am a Living Story.
Kikaysikat Says: Despite my being bipolar; I try function and contribute to society with my best efforts. Challenging? Yes. But I do my best to cope thanks to a great support system. I’m a proud momma of an 8-year old who’s teaching him how to be kind and treat people of all races and genders as an equal. I am a living story and I write my life.
