Colin Menzies

Artist, facilitator, and educator works to bolster creative mental health exploration

Cherie McMaster

Colin Menzies is a Calgary-based artist, facilitator, educator, and an all around wonderful human, who practices here on Treaty 7 territory through the alias The Subliminal Rabbit.

“That just comes from, in all my projects, they always start with drawing,” they explain. “And, in my drawings, there are typically a hidden rabbit. So, that’s kind of become a fun narrative.”

Talking about their practice and projects in the worlds of mental health, art, and creativity, tune into this week’s Storytelling Podcast to learn more about leaning into the arts as a way of wellness.
