Virtual Teacher Workshop: Art and Public Health

Tuesday, March 23, 2021

4:30–6:30 pm

Online

How do artists promote and sustain health in their communities? This professional development workshop invites teachers to explore how the arts can be a tool for reflection and activism in supporting public health. First, examine artistic interventions across a range of historical and contemporary public health issues with Museum educator Michael Reback, to discuss how art can provide direct care and disrupt health inequities. Then, guest artist Lauraberth Lima leads a hands-on quilting activity, drawing on her interdisciplinary background in art and public health to consider the relationship between comfort, care, and artistic expression. Through group discussion and art-making geared toward virtual learning, participants will develop strategies to leverage the arts for personal and collective healing.

Registration is $15. A Zoom link will be sent via email. Members receive 10% off. Not a Member? Join today!
