Event description

Description

Free admission.

Learn about the growing field of arts and healthcare from members of Stuart Pimsler Dance & Theater. The talk will feature an introduction to this field, its relationship to community-engagement, and discussion of how community-inclusive endeavors have different goals than traditional arts projects. An examination of the history of Western medicine and its consideration of body-mind relationships will precede a exploration of Stuart Pimsler Dance & Theater's work in arts and healthcare.

Inspired to provide caregivers with a creative outlet for the stresses of their profession while cultivating greater communication and understanding, Suzanne Costello and Stuart Pimsler of Stuart Pimsler Dance & Theater developed their program, Caring for the Caregiver™. Since its inception, SPDT has presented these programs throughout the United States, Canada, Israel, Russia, Taiwan, Bermuda, and Mexico. The participants from across the globe represent a broad cross-section of the healthcare community including physicians, nurses, medical students, hospice staff, social workers, therapists, counselors, and home healthcare providers.

Co-hosted by the Dr. Robert L.A. Keeley Healing Arts Program at Carilion Clinic and the Moss Arts Center at Virginia Tech.
