During Thomas’ residency they want to work on a zine that deals with the way an individual's personal experience of mental illness (specifically, disordered eating) is altered and codified by encounters with institutionalized medicine. Thomas aims to further investigate the ability of local communities to create alternatives to this pathologizing of people's mental lives.
Thomas is a writer and zine maker living in Toronto interested in how to build stronger communities. Thomas' work explores themes of isolation and illness.
