Well-being with Meaning: Check out the O+Festival, October 8,9 & 10!

Check out the O+ Festival this October 8,9 and 10! This project is to stimulate an exchange of ‘medicine’ between artists and health care professionals in the Kingston area. As Denise Orzo,  one of the coordinators for the event describes, “…It’s part art and music celebration, part urban renewal, part taking care of one another, part social activism.”
Here’s the scoop.  Health care professionals around the Kingston area have provided health care service for the uninsured ‘creative’ class. In return, artists from around the area are creating large format paste ups inspired by the human body, anatomy, wellness, etc. The works will be displayed in designated areas in uptown Kingston, specifically donated for this cause. The participating artists will receive health care, as well as have their work documented in situ and published in a post-festival catalog.

Unfortunately, the deadline for submissions was Sept. 10.

The festival will feature performances from some great bands, short films will be shown and a seven hour long endurance performance by Linda Montano will be performed. Admittance is a suggested donation of only$25  for three days!  If any of you are interested in volunteering at the festival you will receive a free three day admittance!
