January 31 – February 1, 2014
Cornish continues an annual tradition this spring with Our Creative Society, a two day convening that celebrates and illuminates the role that the arts play in the health and well-being of individuals and communities.
The theme of this second convening of Our Creative Society is The Arts + Wellbeing. Illuminating Ways to Thrive. The goal of this theme is to explore the ways in which creativity and artistic practice can bring new approaches to human health and wellbeing, from the personal to the public. During the Day of Ideas, we will expand this theme within the framework of key focal points including physical and societal health as well as participatory workshops to experience well being.
