Arts in Health Interactive Workshops

12:45 PM – 1:15 PM Creating and Adapting Music in Healthcare Settings


Our ability to nurture is our courage to connect.
Flowing with what is happening is a necessary skill when you are bedside, working one-on-one with someone in a vulnerable state. It requires a focused sensitivity and a caring nature.
In this interactive presentation you will be introduced to songs and stories inspired by a desire to bridge that connection. We will explore how the arts open the doors even in the most vulnerable of circumstances.


Learning Objectives:


  1. Learn simple tools to be an intermediary agent from a blue to a brighter mood.
  2. Harmonize with any hesitation that what you have to offer is warmly welcomed.
  3. Tune-in with a mind-set to elevate the vibe of every room you enter.
  4. Recognize how music and artistic expression ignites the power of imagination, humor, caring and community.

1:15 PM—2:00 PM Weaving as a Tool for Social Change and Personal Transformation


This hands-­on weaving workshop will model from start to finish how to create a 'sanctuary studio' with any population in transition. No experience necessary. Making art in a community context develops personal reflection and skills training.
