Event description

Description

Research proves that arts and culture are integral to our health and well-being. But what does it mean to be well? How does creativity inform our physical, intellectual, emotional and spiritual well-being? How does our welfare intersect with our responsibility to the planet? Join us to investigate these questions at Weaving Wellness: Empowering Creativity, Nourishing Artistic Practice, presented in partnership with the Vancouver Park Board and the Roundhouse Community Arts & Recreation Centre. This two-day conference, curated by theatre artist Lisa Cooke Ravensbergen with special attention to Indigenous protocols and cultural practices, will guide participants through a reflexive process of doing, listening and sharing. By embracing diverse perspectives and new ideas and ways, attendees will arrive at a holistic understanding of the connections between art, creativity, health and well-being.

Weaving Wellness takes place September 30-October 1 at the Roundhouse in Vancouver, on the unceded territories of the Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh First Nations. Early bird registration is available at Eventbrite until Monday, September 16, with discounted rates for students/seniors and BC Alliance members.
