February Newsletter

This newsletter was sent out last week. If you'd like to join the newsletter, click here.

Over the last few weeks, we've been extremely grateful to receive your generous donations. Your contributions support our programming, allowing more subsidized and FREE programming to the community while supporting our teaching artists and the future of BuildaBridge. Together, we raised over $5300! While our annual appeal concluded last week, please do consider a gift to help BuildaBridge maintain momentum into the coming year.



BuildaBridge is proud to welcome two of our newest BuildaBridge Restorative Teaching Artists, Esther Hermiz and Candy Gonzalez. Both have graced Philadelphia with their presence and art. Now, they are bringing their love of art and community to BuildaBridge. Esther, a music therapist and singer/songwriter will teaching workshops on musical improvisation and Candy will teaching workshops based in writing and visual arts. With the continuation of COVID, BuildaBridge provides public therapeutic art-making as trauma and hardship touches all our lives these days.

*As of 1/30, there's a waiting list to join: Self-Expression Through Word and Image, BUT there are still a few spots left to join Exploration Through Musical Improvisation! REGISTER HERE

The Arts of Self-Care

BuildaBridge Restorative Teaching Artists began to facilitate an online workshop called, The Arts of Self-Care. The Arts of Self-Care brings together the intrinsic value of art-making with an understanding of art-making's biological, neurological and psychological benefits. The Southeastern Pennsylvania Regional Task Force funded the program to reach 12 frontline human services organizations responding to the COVID crisis. Self-Care is extremely critical to individual being and supports a person's ability to serve others. If you're interested in joining an Arts of Self-Care Public Program or hearing more, please contact BaB.
