Talkshop: Arts and Wellness

September 29, 2007 @ 10:00 AM - 2:00 PM

How can exposure to the arts be a healing force in people’s lives? How can the power of creative expression help people deal with illness and provide opportunities for artistic transformation? During this TalkShop, the panelists will talk about their experiences working in the arts and arts education, as they relate to wellness. Teaching artists working in hospitals, vibrational medicine, and music-thanatology are several of the topics that will be addressed.
