Happy New Year! - 2024


About the My Voice Media Center: The My Voice Media Center (MVMC) is made possible through a partnership between the Arts Consortium and the Tulare County Health and Human Services Mental Health branch. The My Voice Media Center serves adults from throughout Tulare County who have first-hand experiences with mental health struggles and those who provide support for the same. We believe that self-expression through various mediums of art can help our community members thrive on their path of wellness and recovery. The My Voice Media Center aims to reduce the stigma surrounding mental illness.






Our activities include the following:

  • We provide a safe and welcoming environment where participants may explore their artistic style

  • We provide opportunities for our participants to learn from professional artists on and off-site

  • We provide exhibition and art sale opportunities for interested participants

  • We provide opportunities for our participants to take part in presentations that help educate our community at large about mental wellness and recovery

  • We collaborate with local organizations to promote and advocate for mental health services

  • We provide opportunities for our participants to visit other arts and culture centers

Onsite Adult Sessions: Photography, Printmaking, Video Editing, Photo Editing, Drawing, Painting, Guitar, 2D and 3D Art, NSSB (No Stigma Speakers Bureau), Peer Support, Art and Feelings, Art of Movement, and other activities, such as field trips.

Offsite Youth Sessions: Tulare County Court Appointed Youth, or CASA Art Night, California Health Collaborative’s HEAL Project Art Night
