    Well Arts Institute

    Well Arts is an innovative nonprofit employing performing artists to work with people living with physical illness, mental illness, or social stigma to put their stories on stage for their communities, fostering healing by providing a safe space for creativity, exploration, empathetic connection and community relationships. To do this, we partner with service, residential, advocacy and healthcare organizations to facilitate playwriting and oral history theatre workshops for the people they serve. We give workshop participants the tools to write their stories clearly, creatively and powerfully. We curate their stories into a script and then audition professional actors. The actors perform the stories the participants write as a collection of monologues and scenes in stage readings for the public, allowing both participants and the wider community a forum to explore issues close to the heart. When we understand each other's stories, healing can begin!
