About the event
Join us Tuesday, April 25, 2023 from 2 - 5:30 PM for an afternoon exploring the power of arts to advance community health and equity through networking, arts and community showcases, and panel discussions with the Arts Alliance for Health Equity founders, members, and funders.
From 2 - 3:00 PM expand your network and connect with fellow guests while enjoying complimentary beverages provided by Colorado's Natural Champions, Teakoe. Partake in some of Denver's finest desserts and fingerfoods served by Angie's Vegan Cakes and CJ's Sticky Fingers (vegan and non-vegan options available).
Within the 2 PM hour, you'll be able to experience the soothing sounds of harpist/vocalist/songwriter Anastezhaa of the band Ramakhandra while witnessing a live painting creation by Denver's Emeka Cook. Our partnership with Ponzio Creative Arts Therapy Program and The Afrocentric Network at Children's Hospital Colorado is making artwork available for purchase by worldrenown artist Thomas Lockhart, commissioned artist for Tyler Perry.
Once the event begins, hear from our founding partners and incredible sponsor agencies on how this all began and what's in store for you, our partners!
We are excited to feature the exceptional and groundbreaking work of Mirror Image Arts based in Denver, CO and close with our dynamic panel discussion featuring:
- Jasmine Chu, Arts Coordinator | Ponzio Creative Arts Therapy Program
- Gretchen Groenke, Community & Cultural Advocate | Greater Four Corners Region
- Patience Kabwasa, Executive Director | Food to Power
- Cass Walton, Executive Director | Pikes Peak Suicide Prevention Partnership
- Marcus Weaver, Deputy Director | Community Outreach Service Center
And if that wasn't enough, Cleo Parker Robinson Dance and several of their international touring company members will be leading a full event dance activity!
We can't wait to Arts & Health with you!
