Art As Healing



We Collaborate With Diverse Organizations And Communities. Some of our partners include: 

Tamalpa Institute

Tamalpa Institute, founded in 1978, offers training programs and workshops in the Life/Art Process, a movement-based expressive arts approach that integrates movement/dance, visual arts, performance techniques and therapeutic practices. This approach supports personal, interpersonal and social transformation, teaching new models for health, psychology, art and communication.

For nearly four decades, the students, faculty, and graduates of the Tamalpa Institute have brought the healing power of creative expression to diverse, less affluent communities, throughout the world. Tamalpa Artcorps continues to be our most important collaborator and support, to continue bringing the Planetary Dance to diverse schools and communities in the West Coast.
