Resilience through creativity: A Global Resilience Institute art show
The Global Resilience Institute (GRI) hosted its inaugural art show: Resilience Through Creativity on March 15. The show was the first installment in a series of events focused on the intersection of Art and Resilience. This immersive event showcased original works representing creative expressions of individual resilience to a wide array of traumatic events or personal loss. Following an introduction from GRI, The Possible Project -- a youth organization centered on instilling an entrepreneurial mindset -- gave a brief talk on their mission. Additionally, participants also had the option to explore the narrative of Resilience in their lives through engaging in hands-on experience with creative arts. The event was hosted in collaboration with Dr. Julia Byers, a GRI Distinguished Senior Fellow and Professor Emerita, Lesley University and showcased many pieces made available by the EDI Institute.
