Live Well @ Your Library

Live Well @ Your Library

Sunday, Jun 27, 1:00pm to 3:00pm

Give yourself the gift of time for reflection at this family-friendly wellness event for adults. We'll have several stations of self paced-activities created by Bubbler Artist-In-Residence Hellen Ascoli and Pinney Studio Artist-In-Residence Maria Amalia Wood.  You will be able to participate in a chair yoga activity, a community dance activity, and community conversations about wellness.  There will be mini-maker kits for kiddos to explore with their grown ups and open time for reflection and journaling.

"Live Well @ Your Library" is inspired by the work of Venus Washington, Jasmine Timmons, Araceli Esparza and Nikki Cook and their "Nourish You" Library Takeover Project, and seeks to empower those who have not always felt included in traditional wellness spaces, particularly BIPOC (Black, Indigenous and People of Color) communities.  Presenters at this event include Araceli Esparza of Wisconsin Mujer, Jamie Pekarek Krohn of Be Well Madison, Anne Asher of Posturally, Iris Mickey of Essential Yoga Therapy, and more.
