April Web Conference: Healing Arts and the Military
GIA’s next Web Conference session, Healing Arts and the Military: Community Impact Programs, will be held on Tuesday, April 22. This session will feature the work of Americans for the Arts, the Global Alliance for Arts & Health, and the National Center for Creative Aging, three national service organizations building support for community-based arts programs that serve active military and their families, as well as veterans across the life span. Presenters will be Donna Glassford, Gay Powell Hanna, and Marete Wester.
GIA web conferences are open to everyone and free to GIA members. You can find more information about the event and registration here.
Also worth noting: Philanthropy Northwest member The Russell Family Foundation sends along a video, "Hot Shop Heroes: Healing with Fire," which showcases a pilot program at the Museum of Glass in Tacoma which focuses on healing through the processes of glass art making.
