Event description

Description

As part of the new MIWSFPA Wellness Series, join Brock kinesiology student Chance Mutuku on January 16 for an interactive keynote presentation on his journey from sports to the arts. A former wrestler and entrepreneur, Chance was forced to take a different path in life when a concussion put a halt to his successful wrestling career. He found both fulfillment and mental wellbeing by engaging in visual arts after his injury.

At the event, Chance will be accompanied by members of Brock University's Marilyn I. Walker School of Fine and Performing Arts (MIWSFPA), and local community health and wellness groups, who will engage in a discussion about the positive mental benefits of being involved in the arts.

The presenters will also touch on the accessibility and benefits of the arts to everyone – even those who don’t consider themselves to be artists.
