Learn how the arts can help employee/customer mental and physical health and how to bring wellness arts experiences into your workplace!

About this event

Led by accredited arts therapists Dr. Tamara Shella and Dr. Debbie Bates from the Cleveland Clinic Arts & Medicine program alongside music therapist Sarah Miller, movement therapist Anson Lampe, and artists Misty Brown and Joyce McCartney, this workshop will help attendees learn the direct connection between the arts and employee wellness in any setting, and patient/client wellness in a healthcare setting.

Included in the program will be examples of how the arts can be utilized to improve mental health and well-being in the workplace, evidence of the benefits in improved employee engagement including increased productivity and creativity, and the financial benefits including lessened employee absenteeism and lower health costs. The participants will have an opportunity to enjoy hands-on experiences in art, music, and movement therapies.

Breakout discussions will include a focus on arts therapy for those working in the healthcare industry, which has been heavily impacted by the pandemic over the last two years. Drs. Shella and Brown will moderate this conversation and share their successes with Cleveland Clinic’s outstanding Arts & Medicine program.

Due to the nature of this workshop, participants must commit to attending the full day. A light breakfast and full lunch will be provided. In the event you register and are unable to attend, please email Dorie Watts at dwatts@cultureworks.org so we can cancel your registration and open the space to another attendee.

This event is free to attendees thanks to the generous support of Montgomery County and CareSource.
