Every Wednesday in May, Hawaii residents can participate in a free, four-part virtual series showcasing how the arts can be used as a modality for healing.

Each event will explore how creativity can foster self-awareness, cultivate emotional resilience and promote a sense of personal wellness.

The program is offered by Hawaii Arts Alliance and Mental Health America of Hawaii. It’s suitable for all ages. No prior artistic experience is necessary.

The series will kick off at noon on May 6 with a movement-based workshop offered by dancer Matt Del Rosario (also known as Lauhala Matt). Del Rosario is the founder and artistic director of Flow Kakou, a Hawaii-based arts and cultural nonprofit organization that uses movement-based activities to spark creativity and innovation.

You can register for the event here. Presenters for subsequent events in the series are forthcoming,
