  • Community Engagement

How can museums support individual and community wellness, belonging, and resilience? Hear a case study from the Palo Alto Art Center about Creative Attention, an initiative that included an exhibition, artist residencies, an art therapy residency, public programs, and wellness programs. As part of the session, participate in a virtual meditation with our wellness program provider and use the prompts created by our art therapist in an artmaking session.
