The Gathering Place presents their 2nd Annual “Community Illumination” Benefit on Friday, August 21st, 2015 from 5:30pm-9:00pm. The event is an advocacy piece designed to raise awareness of mental illness in our community and uses art as a vehicle to conduct outreach to our community about our programming and services.

This year we are involved with an arts partnership with Paper Circle artists and will hold a live screen-print event with member artwork for sale.  Our event will also include Voices of Poetry project with area dancers, our house band “The Gatherers” and special guests, the Come On, Come Ons.

Tickets are $20 for adults and children 12 and under are free and can be purchased online at or at our facility on 7 N. Congress St., Athens, Ohio.
