Through Bridging Wellness, Angels Gate Cultural Center, Arts Council for Long Beach and Compound LB have formed a creative alliance of community-focused art centers, nonprofits and artists. The projects encourage wellbeing and healing through art, connection, community engagement, and creative expression. Bridging Wellness is partly funded by WE RISE LA. With our breath of disciplines and vast reach in the southeast and port cities, we are committed to create new content on the topic of healing as a way to connect participants to resources and expand their network to include creativity as a tool for wellness. Our model centers participants’ experiential engagement with artists and creators who actively use health and wellness as a tool for positive, healthy change in the community. Themes important to our collaborators include: mental health as spiritual and creative practice with elders; permaculture and food security discussions with BIPOC business in Long Beach; art as a vehicle to illuminate issues in our lives and alleviate stress in our communities; creative work to help heal trauma; cultural relevance of mental health, wellness and connection.
