Event Details


Artistic and creative practices have long been thought to have positive effects on mental health and wellness, transmuting traumatic feelings and their effects into opportunities for introspection, creation, and celebration while inspiring community advocacy and healing. 

Join us for an evening of artistic rituals, visual art, musical performances, and a panel discussion with mental health experts that explores how to get, keep, and spread joy in these trying times. This event features Dr. Noel Manyindo: Associate Professor and Department Chair of the CUNY School of Medicine; Dr. Jeff Gardere, "America's Psychologist;" Rev. Melissa Moore-Nobles: Interfaith Minister and Spiritual Life Coach, and many more! While tickets for this live event are currently sold out, we encourage you to VIEW THE LIVESTREAM below on the day of the event.  In addition please Submit your questions for the panelists and moderators here.
