Art and Eating Disorders

The Emily Program Foundation is proud to support the recovery and healing process of eating disorders through artwork. With the belief that artwork helps individuals find their voice, identity, and empowerment through creative expression, we share artwork inspired by eating disorder recovery with the public as a way to increase awareness and education of eating disorders.
Over this past summer, we recruited 5 participants to be part of a new audiovisual project under the scope of our Art and Eating Disorders program.  Through an online video platform, the new project creates a space in which participants discuss the healing power of artwork during their journey to recovery. The project aims to document versions of the recovery narrative that acknowledge both the struggles and strengths to ultimately provide hope and increase public awareness of eating disorders.
