Event Details

After months of quarantine with no end in sight, and with a nation sharing
a collective sense of grief and anxiety, how do we find meaning in our studio work, how do we create in a time of uncertainty?
Please join us on August 26, 7 pm, for meaningful discussion about art, community, and healing. We join 3 artists/health practitioners who will share their perspectives, insights, and practice, exploring the therapeutic value of the arts. Comments and participation by all will be encouraged.
