After a long week (and a long year!) join us for a discussion of arts and health with distinguished experts in the field. Dr. Vivien Marcow Speiser and Dr. Phillip Speiser will speak about their history and work in arts therapy, arts and health, and arts education. They’ll include experiential activities for viewing and participation.
The discussion will be moderated by MCA Executive Director, Darren Farrington. Questions may be emailed prior to the event to email@example.com or may submitted through the Zoom chat function during the event.
Registration is free, but required prior to attendance.
