"Gathering" Workshops Review | Art for Social Welfare

On 9-10 December, we at the Beijing Contemporary Art Foundation (BCAF) invited the audience to chat about wellness, art, creativity and self-talk with guides to art healing events and guest artists from different creative fields.

In the Gathering 2023 workshop series, there is a mindful journey to explore the city, history and culture in winter. They awaken the energy in our bodies and allow us to reap the benefits of inner peace and tranquility.
