Haley Honeman

September 19, 2015

Haley Honeman, an Master of Fine Arts in theatre for youth student in the School of Film, Dance and Theatre, partnered with international artist Karla Hernando Flores on her applied project “Healings, Integrations, Illuminations,” which took places in Fergus Falls, Minnesota, in September 2015. The project was part of Springboard for the Arts Lake Region’s Hinge Arts residency program, which positions artists in residence to develop cultural programming inspired by Fergus Falls State Hospital, the town’'s 124-year-old former mental institution.

“I am interested in studying portrayals of mental health in theatre,” says Honeman. “I wanted to facilitate an opportunity for my community to tell their own stories of illness, wellness, healing and transition in my applied project work.”
