Arts and Well Being

This is a program community that is focused on how the arts work to promote human wellbeing for individuals, groups, and communities. We have all lived through so much disruption, loss, even trauma with the COVID 19 pandemic. We will flesh out these experiences for ourselves, our neighborhood, and the world at large and think about the work of the arts as a mechanism for addressing these experiences. Students will have the option of joining two spring 2022 classes focused on music/arts and wellbeing taught by Faculty Fellow Carol Muller, one of which is an academically based community service class working in West Philly schools. We will practice our own well being through a variety of forms of self expression that don’t require any kind of ‘talent’ or ‘skill’ just a willingness to express deeply felt emotion through the arts and performance, and visit a variety of arts and wellbeing sites in the city of Philadelphia.
