Join us at the Cornish Playhouse on Saturday, February 1 for a Day of Ideas.
Together we’ll explore the ways in which creativity rooted in artistry can bring new opportunities to improve the human condition. From the health of our communities and public lives to the very personal issues we face – creative therapies and solutions can be found in the most unexpected places.
We’ll bring together medical professionals, artists, writers, educators, and the local community to engage in conversations, experience performances, and take part in workshops that think about how the arts can refresh and edify the mind and body.
Featuring opening workshop and presentation with David Leventhal, Dance for Parkinsons Program Director and founding teacher.
