Wellness is a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.
-World Health Organization
Homer Council on the Arts has teamed up with South Peninsula Behavioral Health Services to explore wellness through art, and how art can facilitate wellness in us as individuals, families, a community, and across the Southern Kenai Peninsula.
Have you experienced trauma and loss?
Do you carry the experience of trauma from long ago?
Trauma comes in many forms, and there are no easy solutions to move past it. The loss of a loved one, generational trauma, acute and ongoing impacts of the pandemic, and systemic injustice are just some of the challenges surrounding us today.
Art can be an important tool to work through trauma and grief and move toward a place of increased resilience. Homer Council on the Arts and South Peninsula Behavioral Health Services invited our community to participate in this collaboration.
Proceeds from artwork sales will benefit the Independent Living Center TRAILS program!
