You Are Invited To Join The Healing Clinic This Weekend at the O+ Festival in Pilsen!
O+ is a completely community run, grassroots, “band-aid” solution to inaccessible health care for uninsured artists, bartering the art of medicine for the medicine of art.
The O+ Festival was founded in Kingston, NY in 2010 by a small group of artists, musicians, a primary care doctor and a dentist. The O+ Festival (pronounced o-positive) is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to enhancing community well-being by connecting musicians, artists and health & wellness providers in weekend-long celebrations.
Across the country, O+ Chapters host annual festivals that integrate art and wellness; musicians play concerts and artists gift the host city with murals and installations while health and wellness providers donate their services to the creative participants. The general public, via donation, gets all access wristbands to view and interact with art, hear bands play live music and participate in a variety of wellness classes.
“The goal here is wellness. Not only the physical, mental and emotional wellness of artists and musicians, but the overall wellness of community. We want to continue to be a part of the growth of the communities we serve, by developing employment opportunities both internally and externally. There is a very clear shift taking place, where local and sustainable are becoming the priority. This is how we can make meaningful change in the lives of our neighbors.” – Theresa Widmann, Director of operations for O+ Festivals, INC.
