Commission a custom installation.

The Human Element Project is an interactive, dynamic and creative opportunity to develop thought-provoking art installations that make powerful social statements about the connection between art and science; social, spiritual or biological. Our goal is to create an on-going dialog dedicated to exploring these vital connections through public art installations, exhibitions, hands-on workshops and education. 

Integrative Health workshops encourage patients suffering from a variety of diseases to share their experiences.  Patients are invited to share the tools they have acquired for coping with their challenges in positive ways. This opportunity for sharing allows patients to support one another in the healing journey.  Contact us to host a workshop.
