First Friday Art Walk: It Knows No Face Opening Reception

  • Everyday Joe's Coffee House 144 S Mason Street Fort Collins (map)

It Knows No Face has a mission through an exhibit and series of short films to bring a powerful voice to the topic of suicide - a topic that for too long has been avoided, misjudged and misunderstood. We want to not only bring awareness, but also present a effective tool of hope and healing and prevention with "It Knows No Face" because it is not okay that we will lose almost one million of our loved ones this year to suicide --- one person every forty seconds! With the recent celebrity deaths of Kate Spade, Anthony Bourdain and Margot Kidder the topic of suicide is across headlines throughout the world. However, people still avoid the topic and any discussion, yet the rate of suicide continues to grow significantly. With this in mind, It Knows No Face was championed to become a strong, much needed ‘voice’ for the deliberately silenced or the preferably unheard - people that are directly dealing with suicide. This very important project and movement’s mission is to become a powerful tool to create measurable, positive change regarding mental illness and suicide. It Knows No Face is truly unlike anything previously produced on the topic of suicide. As the title denotes, It Knows No Face will clearly relay the face that suicide crosses all demographics - age, ethnicity, race, gender, socioeconomic status, etc.
