Jan 7-10, 2021
COVID-19 has magnified almost every existing structural inequality in our society. And yet, when it comes to health, people are still speaking about wellness as a question of personal rather than social responsibility. Presented by Dance Mission’s COMHAR Festival, this four day film festival examines the intersection of health and socio-economic / racial inequities, and how art plays a critical role in the path towards wellness. Art does more than deliver a message. It is itself medicine.
Each day we will host a different free, online screening of a film that dives into these topics of art, healing, and public health. Films will be shown via Zoom (registration required – see below) and also on Dance Brigade’s Dance Mission’s Facebook page. Note: Zoom is recommended for best screening experience. Tickets are free. Donations gratefully accepted.
