Special Event

Thor Harris on Mental Illness

Thor Harris is a musician and artist who has toured and recorded with bands such as Swans, Bill Callahan, Ben Frost, Angels Of Light, Devendra Banhart and many more. Last year, The Mental Health Channel devoted an episode of its series The Inside Story to Harris and his battle with clinical depression. While many studies have demonstrated correlations between creative occupations and mental illnesses, this topic remains too often overlooked–even within artistic communities. Come listen to Harris and engage in discussion as he shares his experience and provides some insight on the illness and ways of managing it.
