Come out for “Healing Through Art” the second installation of the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities’ three-part series entitled Curate Your Culture: Community Conversations.
Storyteller, Rev. Joani Peacock, will kick off the evening with a 10-minute story about living with mental illness and the role the arts can play in recovery. Afterwards there will be a panel discussion that will focus on how the arts and humanities are playing a critical role in the health and healing of those facing physical and psychological challenges. How can creative expression help individuals suffering from terminal illness, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), emotional distress and other physical ailments?
