What is “SOLACE: Healing Through the Arts?”
SOLACE: Healing Through the Arts features Visual Arts, Performances, and Community Workshops over a six-week period, October and November. This series aims to bring individuals of all backgrounds together to find solace or healing from trauma, illness, isolation, grief, and/or related experiences, including, but not limited to, the past year’s world, national, and local events.
We believe in inclusivity and believe everyone has a story to tell, whether that is through word, song, or visual arts. We believe that our mission is most effectively fulfilled through a commitment to inclusiveness as a core value and practice.
