Harmonizing Health: The Transformative Power of Arts in Maternal Well-being

6/18/2024 @ 12PM


“Harmonizing Health” delves into the transformative power of artistic expression in nurturing the health and happiness of mothers. Our panel will explore how creative engagement fosters resilience, self-expression and emotional healing during the journey of motherhood. Discover how artistic interventions can address maternal mental health challenges, promote bonding and empower women to navigate the complexities of pregnancy, childbirth and beyond. Whether you’re an artist, healthcare professional or advocate, join us as we uncover the profound ways in which the arts harmonize with maternal health, enriching lives and fostering well-being for mothers in New Jersey. A special feature of this session includes witnessing art and maternal health in action with a performance by Kelline Bonny, a parent in the Lullaby Project at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center (NJPAC), who will perform an original lullaby created in collaboration with a teaching artist. Our panel is moderated by Tammy Murphy, First Lady of New Jersey.
