Creativity has always been a powerful tool during challenging times - a means of expression, a way to unite, a salve for stress. 


During these days of social distancing and isolation, people are coming together every day to connect in remarkable ways. These expressions bring messages of hope, of being together, even when we're alone. 


MAPS is deeply committed to keeping our student community creatively engaged. One effort is the daily online creativity project, “MAPS Connects Montana.” Monday - Friday at 10am, a daily creative challenge is posted online, texted and emailed to students. Students email their submissions which are posted on an online gallery to share with everyone. 


"MAPS Connects Montana" is another way for our community to stay connected, relieve stress, tune in creatively, inspire hope and build resilience - all necessary ingredients to healthy well-being.
