Jessie Knowles describes her solo show as an “artistic outreach” to raise awareness of mental health.

An interdisciplinary artist here in Chattanooga, Jessie lives with what she calls her “mental differences” - and she tells her story in her own words in “Jessie’s Messy Mind Show,” which premieres Friday night at The Seed Theatre.

I spoke with Jessie - and Jack Endelouz, the show’s producer and director.
