Healing Art for hospitals

Donation protected
I implore you to not just read my story but actively participate, become a speaker or an art therapist contribute to a narrative of resilience that transcends dehumanizing judgments.

Me:
I’m an international visual artist since 2014.
Psychiatrist’s patient since 2017.
Public Speaker since 2014.
Single Mother since 2011.
MBA since 2020.
Stroom Den Haag Deny my "Haagse Kunstenaar-Title" due not to having enough presence in Den Haag ( mentioning that I did my degrees in México not in The Netherlands -because of that I can't ask for public cultural funds for this project)

Mostly my work is about understanding the polarity and my polarity , the femenine and masculine aspects of the being; but also tapping into how creative energy improves your overall health

Why hospitals?
My dad raised me by his own since I was 8 years old and he is a doctor, he worked in a hospital in the emergency department and I spent my childhood there around doctors, social workers and patients; the anguish is unavoidable. 


That allowed me to look at amazing and critical moments in human behavior.

When I became a patient everything was a rollercoaster of fear, chaos, shame, anxiety and unhuman treatment for some people of the staff or doctors themselves. Still, I also discovered comprehension, compassion, care, and love. Art saved my life, the opposite of depression is expression right? and when I got deeper into colors, frequencies, and healing frequencies in sounds and in color, making art became my transformation journey and transmutation tool.


This project, book and series actually is about engaging in creative behaviours that improves brain function as well as, mental and physical health focused on patients and healthcare providers.
Whether you are in the waiting room or a patient this project looks to NOT SALE ANY ARTWORK, but to bring the complete 33 pieces exhibition to 12 different locations in the field of mental care, clinics and hospitals.



Being in a state of flow boosts our mental state and even slows the heart rate down, making it particularly significant for people who suffer from mental illness, depression or anxiety. 

Maybe you are familiar with different symptoms or you live or work with people that present:
Constant mood swings
Sadness (depression)
Sense of loneliness 
Anger and anxiety 
Going to inhuman hospital centres where the patient is a number not a person.

Expenses:

I spoke to artists and art therapists to ask how art and creativity can improve your health and wellbeing not only physically but also spiritually, emotionally and mentally.

 —Art-making can help us tap into our emotions and make sense of them — Michelle Dixon Art Therapist 

Why creativity is important for your mental health?

During 2024-2026 I’m gonna make exhibitions, free workshops and lectures about art healing techniques through colors, starting with an exhibition in Healthcare centres and HMC on Gezondheid Centrum at Statenkwartier on March 2024.

In the haunting shadows of Den Haag, my artistic journey, born from personal struggles, faces rejection from Stroom and The Gementee, the reason is unknown.





Still I have faith in a better version of ourselves by healing our wounds and traumas, by giving colors that bring us peace and frequencies that energetically make us feel stronger and happier. Any artwork from the 33 is for sale in the upcoming 3 years.

Amidst hospital anguish, creativity emerges as a beacon.

 Together, let's paint a future where creativity thrives despite the disheartening echoes of denial. Share, participate, and join in framing a collective story of defiance.




During 3 years no piece is for sale; your support is very important to continue this journey.
