Health Humanities Catalysts: Processing Grief and Loss Through Meaningful Collaborations.

Wednesday, November 8, 2023 at 7:30 PM, Quick Live Registration

Poignant in its concerns of shared trauma, grief, and loss confronted universally over the past two years, this panel offers a platform to discuss developments in the medical/therapy field and the opportunities of cross-disciplinary programming – between the professional disciplines of healthcare and those of contemporary art museums, artists and designers, and curators – envisioning the future of well-being and recovery, as well as a conversation on processing personal loss and trauma through art museum experiences. This event is co-sponsored by the Fairfield University Art Museum.
