Flourish: An Arts & Mental Wellness Festival


The Flourish festival seeks to unite themes of mental health and creative expression, encouraging healthy conversations about how the arts impact our well-being.


Join us as we celebrate everything from mind-body awareness and women’s empowerment to modern dance and the talented visual artists of our campus.

The Counseling Center will be hosting a drop-in creative session to serve as the kick off for the festival, during which students are provided with free art supplies and a comforting workspace. Works created during this session (or outside of it) will be featured in the art show happening on the last day of the festival.

All events are open to the public and are either free or ticketed. Tickets for these events may be purchased through the NC State Ticket Central website.
