“I create art because somebody may not necessarily listen to the things that I say, but they will listen to a song if they like it…Even if the message in that song is hard,y’ll still listen to it… art is going to make you engage with the message, 不管你同意与否. I think that’s what art does at its best: It brings up the questions for individuals to have to contemplate themselves.”

Wellbeing is all-encompassing—it can focus on mental, physical, spiritual, and financial wellness. The 4D experience at DU promotes wellbeing and encourages students to discover who they are, 他们想要的东西, and how to get t在这里 through a more integrated process in meaningful connection to others. One can strengthen and support their wellbeing in a multitude of ways, and one of these ways is ‘creative expression.’ Creative expression can help communicate emotions, 心理健康管理, 工作压力, 提高能源, 还有更多. It moves from the idea of ‘fixing’ yourself and more about ‘being’ your most authentic self.

In this upcoming workshop that is part of the 杜多样性峰会, 社区+值 is excited to bring together a group of phenomenal DU and 丹佛 社区 members who will delve into creative expression through an experiential workshop. 学生将 get the opportunity to discover ways to support and strengthen wellbeing through creative expression through a guided reading, 音乐, 口语, 和艺术创作. Join us in exploring creative expression and learn how to honor your story and shape your wellbeing.
