About

The Creative Vision Factory opened its doors in December of 2011. Funded by the State of Delaware’s Division of Substance Abuse and Mental Health, it is one of many peer-run programs incubated by the sweeping reform of Delaware’s greater mental health system. The Creative Vision Factory is on a path to 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status. As a peer-run nonprofit agency, the Factory will be uniquely situated to serve the community, in the heart of an arts and cultural district, that sees the behavioral health population as a genuine partner in the development of a more creative and just City of Wilmington.

Mission

The Creative Vision Factory fosters the creative potential of individuals on the behavioral health spectrum in a studio art environment that cultivates integration with the local art community through a program of exhibitions, workshops, and communal workspace.

Vision

The Creative Vision Factory is where creative individuals share their experience, strength, and hope. We imagine a community free of stigma, where the creative vision of all individuals is valued. We recognize that creative solutions often come from outsider perspectives. We seek to create a space where those perspectives are shared and the solutions are realized in a social atmosphere promoting recovery among peers.

    Where Art is terribly CHEESY, Regurgitation may follow Art – Either Way without freedom of extrusion – Expect the constipated mind to be impacted and Unable to free itself from the sickness that is Atherosclerosis, or Coronary Artery Disease.

  3. What a neat venue! Wish I lived closer… This is right up my ally having MCS.

    Don’t kick yourself, but if you have a note from a psychiatrist, you can be fully funded by the State of Delaware. You would have studio space and access to a good amount of supplies and equipment, including our new Screen-Printing Lab.
