Museums + Mental Health
Join us for a thought-provoking series of workshops for Educators focused on mental health, contemporary art, and teaching to neurological diversity. Meet with museum experts, art therapists, and psychologists, as we explore the healing potential of art and how it can be used as a bridge to well being, social inclusion and learning.
