Creativity and Wellness have a strong influence on our sense of well being.
People suffer from depression, anxiety and stress due to mental illness, physical disease, cancer, special needs of children and other family members, social isolation due to aging or socio-economic limitations, and the daily challenges of our current life styles.
This conference is designed to bring together health care professionals, educators, parents and organizations in support roles who value the benefit of integrating the creative process in their work and in their lives.
Many small organizations and non-profits are working hard to support communities, this is an opportunity for these professionals and organizations to come together and network to do this work together.
Speakers will share their knowledge and experience with participants, offering hands-on art experiences to participants to explore the benefits of arts-based wellness programs. Key Note Speakers, Marc Otto and Melanya Helene will also host a special performance in the morning. In the afternoon, families can sign up to come in and experience creative activities which promote a sense of well being for all family members. Professionals will have an opportunity to network at a short reception following the conference. Click here for the conference schedule.
The Creativity and Wellness Conference will include a silent auction to benefit Free Arts NW and their new Art Studio on Wheels Program. Free Arts NW is a local non-profit dedicated to bringing health and wellness to local communities by providing free art programs.
