Future of Healing In Schools

In June 2019, in collaboration with School of Visual Arts, CIS is curating a month-long initiative that will be an opportunity for friends, sponsors and supporters to help raise critical funds and bring awareness to the work that CIS is currently doing with over 7,000 students in 70 schools throughout NYC.

Our kickoff event on Thursday June 6 will begin with the In My Truth, In My Power exhibition, work created by students in art therapy programs that are led by CIS art therapists.

The month of June will feature a series of art exhibits, screenings and panels on the transformative work being done in our school communities. The conversation will center around the healing elements that emerge from various forms of engagement, including social work, art, drama, music and movement therapy.

Programming at The Future of Healing will feature a screening of a documentary film about CIS by Partisan Pictures; panels moderated by Dr. Sander Koyfman; photography by Eric Espino; and workshops in partnership with the Children’s Health Fund, NYU, Operation Respect, Women in Need, WNYC and others.
