Artists in Momentum

Talented and outspoken, Jebby was born with a disadvantage. Born into a society where the only male child had to fall within certain parameters of expectations, he received little encouragement to experiment with Art. He tragically took his life at the young age of 26. He had the makings of a brilliant artist. “My brother, Jebs, was the ultimate, incomplete artist,” AIM founder, Anna Silgardo

"Mental stigma has a powerful stranglehold on our society. People are scared to acknowledge it, and even more reluctant to talk about it.  It takes courage to break free and pierce the darkness with the light of one's personal experiences.  If not, it's grip will continue to choke us with fear, perpetrating restrictions born of ignorance." - Anna Silgardo
