Healing with Art
Many artists and art organizations have stepped up to offer creative contributions towards the effort to heal Newtown. Stakeholders are offering ideas to collaborate as we move through this process.
We encourage and are grateful for all artistic contributions that are uplifting to help the healing process for children and families in Newtown. We are receiving offers to do programs, workshops, artwork donations, and more. It has truely been amazing.
We see this effort as long term and uplifting to our community. Our team's focus is sorting, categorizing, and connecting all we receive that will help encourage,pick up spirits and get them out to the community. If you have a particular idea or willingness to help in some way, please tell us!
