can you hear?
Jasmine Powell is the creator of Silent Revolution.
She is a writer, artist, mentor, facilitator, and speaker.
She lives and works on the unceded land of the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation.
Jasmine’s work is about madness.
Mad people see deep into what’s often hidden and ignored.
They’re forced to see.
Jasmine’s journey from catatonia to creative empowerment reveals the antidote to madness.
That we listen to our inner voice, to our dreams, and that we meet the ineffable in our unconscious.
With our feet grounded on the earth.
Madness can then be seen as part of human experience, all horrific, telling, and beautiful in its many guises.
Hello. What brought you here?
Rare is the human who will take my hand and converse with me about madness, melancholia and malaise.
Lend me your ears and I’ll tell you secrets of the underworld. Then I’ll listen to you. Together, we can speak of monsters and ghouls that haunt us both.
Let’s shine a light on the truth of madness so that we may be less alone in our sad, mad story.
I invite you to be part of the art of conversation on mental health. It’s not easy. But, with a healthy dose of terror, a little TLC, and a bit of creative flair, we’ll find our way out of the darkness. And back to ourselves.
Hello. My name is Jasmine.
I first went mad in Africa in 2004. Since then, I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve been mad. My madness got so bad it culminated in catatonia; I couldn’t move or speak.
But I see madness as a state of mind, and minds can, and do, change.
To me, my crises are a creative malfunction, and catatonia the logical progression after years of self-silencing, and being silenced.
it follows, then, that my healing requires creative expression and speaking up.
Hence I am sharing my madness through my writing, art, mentoring, facilitation and speaking.
