Health and Wellness Through the Arts Conference returns to ART 321 in May

("Spirit Willing" by Laura Black)

CASPER, Wyo. — ART 321 will host the second annual Health and Wellness Through the Arts Conference on May 13 and 14.

The conference highlights “innovative and evidence-based programs from around the country, foster[s] cross-sector partnerships, and envision[s] a healthier future for Wyoming through the Arts,” ART 321 said.

The conference brings together artists, arts administrators, and healthcare and community service providers to explore arts in health programs and develop new collaborations to advance the state of health for Wyoming residents.

Isabella Tysver, a physical and mental health coach and nutritionist from Rawlins, said she was “overwhelmed in a positive way” by the range of topics covered (as well as the challenges to be surmounted) at last year’s conference.  Then-vice mayor Ray Pacheco and House District 14 Representative Trey Sherwood were among the panelists last year.

Register soon to enroll in the free Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST) workshop for arts administrators and artists led by Lindsay Martin, manager for the Wyoming Department of Health’s Injury & Violence Prevention Program.
