Event Description

Curative Collective Conversation: Care for Creatives

In this new series, join us for in-depth interviews with the Curative Collective, a group of Women, Arts, and Social Change partners working at the intersection of food, art, and social change. From advocacy and social justice to healing and restorative self-care, this diverse collective serves communities throughout the Baltimore–Washington metropolitan area. The Curative Collective is also working on NMWA’s exhibition, RECLAMATION: Recipes, Remedies, and Rituals to make sure that the exhibition incorporates local communities and their perspectives.

This week we are joined by Care for Creatives, a new program from George Washington University Community Counseling Services Center that is aimed at providing affordable mental health services to members of the D.C. creative community. Through a partnership with the D.C. Office of Cable TV, Film, Music and Entertainment and Creative Affairs Office, the GW Community Counseling Services Center is offering pay-what-you-can mental health services to cultural workers in the District. This event will be livestreamed on NMWA’s Facebook page and at nmwa.org/livestream.

If you need the services of Care for Creatives, please email CCSCFoggyBottom@gwu.edu and a team member will follow up.

Women, Arts, and Social Change is a public programs initiative that highlights the power of women and the arts as catalysts for change.
