Healing through Art: Healing through Art is dedicated to empowering trauma survivors through effective expressive outlets. Our mission is to enable the survivors/artists to display and market their works to give them recognition, hope, and direction by implementing this innovative approach to healing and growing as a healthy human being.

Healing through Adventure: Healing through Adventure sees potential in individuals while others far too often see limitations. Our primary focus is for individuals who need emotional, mental, physical, and social healing. Healing through Adventure is designed for individuals to take risks and do things that are initially uncomfortable even frightening; and that eventually generate new, unexpected, and deeply satisfying results. Individuals learn to reach out to others and acquire the self-confidence and courage to move forward in their lives, one day at a time. PTSD and anxiety sufferers can gain the inner strength to capture the joy and hope of living full and satisfying lives while learning to deal with bouts of fear, anxiety, and uncertainty. Adventures Coming, Join our mailing list to stay informed.

Healing through Technology: Within the Foundation we focus on Science. Using emerging technologies to monitor brain wave functions and vital statistics to gain data to illustrate how holistic therapies our perform Non Pharmaceutical Therapies.


Art Therapy helps PTSD survivors communicate and resolve traumatic memories, relieve stress, and reduce symptoms of trauma-released conditions.

Transforming Trauma through Art, Technology, and Community

Welcome to the inspiring story of The Eleven Eleven Foundation, where healing meets innovation. Founded by John Krawczyk, our organization emerged from a profound commitment to addressing mental health issues through a holistic and transformative lens.

Driven by a fervent desire to instigate lasting change in the mental health landscape, John envisioned a space where individuals could access healing beyond conventional methods. Acknowledging the limitations of pharmaceutical approaches in addressing the root causes of mental health challenges, the founder embarked on a mission to pioneer a more comprehensive and personalized healing journey.

Established in 2017, Eleven Eleven responded to the growing demand for alternative and effective methods to tackle trauma head-on. Having witnessed firsthand the gaps in traditional treatments, the founder sought to integrate art, technology, and adventure as formidable tools for healing.

Art as a Therapeutic Medium:

In our nascent stages, the foundation focused on unlocking the therapeutic potential of art. Through strategic partnerships with skilled artists and mental health professionals, we introduced pioneering art therapy programs. These initiatives offered individuals a creative outlet to express, explore, and process their emotions, catalyzing profound journeys of self-discovery and healing.

The Role of Technology:

As technology advanced, so did our commitment to harnessing its potential for mental health support. Embracing cutting-edge innovations, Eleven Eleven integrated virtual reality, interactive platforms, and digital art mediums into our programs. This strategic fusion aimed to enhance accessibility, engagement, and the overall impact of our therapeutic interventions.

Venturing into Community Therapy:

Recognizing the transformative power of nature and experiential learning, Eleven Eleven expanded its horizons to include adventure therapy. Immersive outdoor activities, team-building exercises, and exhilarating adventures became intrinsic components of our holistic approach, offering individuals opportunities to reconnect with themselves and others in profound and transformative ways.

Today and Beyond:

As we reflect on our journey, Eleven Eleven remains resolute in its mission to push boundaries, challenge norms, and provide innovative solutions for mental health challenges. Our expedition continues as we explore new frontiers, forge strategic alliances, and strive to leave an enduring impact on the lives of those in search of healing and resilience.

Join us on this transformative odyssey as we pioneer a future where art, technology, and adventure converge to heal, inspire, and empower.

Together, we embark on a journey of healing and hope.

“My practice of art , painting , sculpture and jewelry are only the end products…… what is important to me are the moments and experiences I have through my work. The people I meet and the things I do are for a reason. – Director of Art – Ted Tihansky

The 11/11 Foundation allows people like us express and demonstrate healing to others through art as I have had to do for the most part of MY life. Growing up in states of depression and anxiety fueled the fire for finding a place within myself where I was centered , anxiety free and full of life. Art, drawing at the time was the key early on, around five years of age. I found peace among the chaos around me. The drawing and desire to create released me, unknowingly at the time, into serenity leading to a sense of well-being.

Growing older I lost sight of art and the healing effect it had on me. The chaos and anxiety quickly became the norm of my life during this period. The social demands and peer pressure took over my life and led to consequences leaving me lost and depressed. ESCAPE through self abuse took over the positive feelings of life.

Suddenly after much imposed hardship, miraculously, I remembered my youthful experience of the positive energy and healing I received by expressing myself through creating things. Developing my gift for art led me on an unimaginable journey of self discovery, of peace within and a sense of touching others.

I was returning to a life filled with fulfillment and joy rather than anxiety and depression. Participating in the 11/11 Foundation will allow me to continue touching and helping others through my art. My work would include leading roles in teaching and sharing my experiences through creating. The art will also be a mainstay in my own healthy development and hopefully the awakening of others to the process of the healing power of the arts.

Expression of all forms of art transcends cultures that can unite us as human beings. Unity can take us beyond the chaos and expands our experiences on a personal, worldly and universal level. The practice of art expands our minds to a higher level of consciousness. It can break all barriers of ordinary communication and help us set aside our own cultural pathology allowing us to communicate to the rest of the world and universe in a more healthy and productive way.

Creative expression is healing me physically, spiritually and mentally. My desire is to bring this remarkable state of elevation in spirit and healing to others who have gotten lost and suffer from the scars of life as I have.

ELEVEN/ELEVEN” is providing the opportunity to continue with these moments and experiences as I produce art work to expand my journey of sharing, touching people on a higher level of consciousness and promote healing. “REALLY, THE PEOPLE I MEET AND THE THINGS I DO ARE FOR A REASON.”
