Art & Resilience

Contemporary art reflects our humanity and guides us to contemplate how we engage with others in our society. The gallery space provides a unique container to cultivate and hold deep conversation, intentional community building, and mindfulness skills. Each of the Art & Resilience programs are designed to not only engage the arts in new and fresh ways, but are also informed by facets of the field of positive psychology that teach us that resilience can be learned and strengthened. Current Art & Resilience programs include Art on the Brain, addressing brain/mind trauma; Art Unlocked, serving women emerging from incarceration; Vets at the Wex, a partnership with the Chalmers P. Wylie VA Ambulatory Care Center; and On Pause, a meditation workshop open to the public developed in collaboration with Replenish: The Spa Co-op.
