BODY TALK: art as wellness

  • The Corners Brooklyn 395 Nostrand Avenue Brooklyn, NY, 11216 United States (map)

Join Body Politic for the next installment of our BODY TALK series, where we bring together queer and feminist artists, activists, and wellness practitioners to share stories. June's BODY TALK will focus on the theme "art as wellness." How does the act of making art function as self-care? Can art help us build more inclusive and accessible wellness spaces? What is the relationship between consuming and making art, and mental health? Our storytellers (soon to be announced!) will share perspectives on how art intersects with wellness in their lives.

We'll begin at 5PM with some mingling and cocktails. Rafflle tickets will also be available at this time (more info on this below). The Corners is offering $2 off all wine, draft beer, and well drinks for the duration of this event, and the first 20 people to buy online tickets to BODY TALK: art as wellness will receive a free drink! So get your ticket now! A signature "mocktail" will also be available. Storytelling will take place from 5:30-6:30, after which we'll wind down with some music and drinks and announce our raffle winners!

We are raffling off three amazing prizes from Dirty HandsAlajas Jewelry, and Anthology Film Archives. Stay tuned for more info on our raffle prizes.
