AT THE CROSSROADS OF ART AND HEALING
Negarra A. Kudumu |Art + Healing is an integrated, research-driven art consultancy and healing practice engaged in critical discourse about contemporary art, healing, and spirituality. The practice departs from the premise that both art and healing are about making: artists make art works, curators make exhibitions, and healers make sustainable integrated solutions that positively affect their clients' well-beings at the mind, body, and spirit levels. The art consultancy engages with and advocates for artists through the production of articles, publications, and exhibitions; participation in artist talks and panel discussions; and the acquisition of grants, residencies, and funding opportunities. The healing practice leverages various modalities to identify and uproot imbalances in the mind, body, and/or spirit; (re)establish harmony so that all can work in good concert; and provide clients with adaptable toolkits they can use over time to sustain their healing.
