Friday, June 7 for Healthcare Leaders and Practitioners

Saturday, June 8 for Artists and Arts Organizations

The arts support healing and wellness — both for those receiving and those giving care — by offering a natural, evidence-based, cost-effective complement to treatment. Engaging with the arts encourages creative approaches to healing and wellness, and offers people a sense of self and wholeness when they are feeling most fragile.
