Integrating Arts And Wellness
The Well Arts Institute helps people with life-threatening illnesses, veterans, and others in crisis tell their stories through theater pieces to aid healing. See our website for stories!
Each year we put on a performance called "Performing Wellness" for a different group of people. This year, we are working with people recovering from addiction, helping them to transform their lives and tell their stories on stage with professional actors.
The arts are a critical component of healthcare. Our mission is to explore, develop and practice creativity as a means of wellness.
Traumatic life experience affects a person physically, emotionally and psychologically. Participation in the arts allows individuals to use their creativity to come to terms and live with these challenges.
