Amplify 2023 Conference Recap Video
Joshway is a vibrant and creative community that participated in the 4th Annual Youth Mental Health & Suicide Prevention Conference hosted by Aevidum. The conference, named "Amplify Aevidum," was held on November 30, 2023, at the Iacocca Center, Lehigh University, in Bethlehem. Our mission is to empower youth through art and fashion while contributing to a greater cause of supporting mental health through creativity and community. Therefore, the event was a natural fit for us.
The conference was a powerful gathering of students, educators, and advocates focused on amplifying the conversation around mental health. Attendees participated in various experiences, including QPR (Question, Persuade, Refer) certification, which provides crucial training in suicide prevention, and inspirational talks from Aevidum members. The event underscored the importance of mental health awareness, which is a cornerstone of Joshway's vision.
At Joshway, artistry is not just about creating; it's about inspiring and being part of a community. Therefore, the conference allowed us to showcase our online shop, Joshwear. By doing so, we showcased how young artists are integral to a vibrant tapestry of creativity. Our involvement at the conference went beyond highlighting our unique fashion line, Joshwear. We were excited to announce our collaboration program, where we invite young artists to design a shirt with us, and for every shirt sold, they get a cash reward. The response we received was overwhelming, sparking conversations about our mission and community.
We are immensely grateful to Aevidum for hosting such a vital event and allowing us to participate in it. Their commitment to youth mental health aligns perfectly with Joshway's goal of empowering young individuals through art and creativity. After our experience at the Amplify Aevidum conference, we are more committed than ever to our mission of fostering a community where young artists feel seen, heard, and supported.
