Our Bodies, Our Stories, Our Communities
Well Arts Institute is a nonprofit, arts organization that explores the health of our community and its members through the reflective lens of the arts.
We partner with local organizations to bring professional artists to facilitate playwriting and oral history theatre workshops for people facing physical illness, mental illness, or social trauma. Our process begins with writing workshops. Facilitators guide participants as they write their stories. Then, a director and the participating writers cast professional actors to perform the stories for the general public in stage readings.
By connecting our community through empathy and creativity, we learn and heal together.
