The livestream will air on Jan. 22 at 7pm CST. Watch it here or scroll down to the bottom of this article.
Proceeds from ticket sales and donations go to support the HHAY Project. The nonprofit organization was named after the work of the late Daniel Johnston, an artist and musician who worked to educate the world about the importance of an open dialogue on mental health.
"This year's Hi How Are You Day will have special significance as it's the first event since Daniel's passing. Many of the artists who will be performing have a long and close history with Daniel and his music,” said Tom Gimbel, longtime manager for Daniel Johnston and Co-Founder of the Hi, How Are You Project. “Their support has been really meaningful over the past two months. I'm excited to see that spirit of love and community take the stage at ACL Live at the Moody Theater on January 22."
HHAY will be teaming up with American Campus Communities across the country to offer special training to further assist American Campus’ Residence Life programs, which offers events and information around health and wellness.
“We are proud to support the important efforts of the Hi How Are You Project as a key component of building community and connection among our student residents, our staff, and the universities we serve,” said Bill Bayless, co-founder and CEO of American Campus Communities. “We look forward to expanding our partnership with HHAY as we implement our training and awareness programs on peer-to-peer support for mental health and wellness at our communities across the country.”
