Like art, culture, health? Care about the community outside Columbia and value friendships in different places? The Research Cluster on Science and Subjectivity is delighted to announce a new art therapy volunteer opportunity at the historic Terence Cardinal Cooke Center, less than a mile away from Columbia’s campus.
This program is different from most. High-quality art supplies will be provided for students to develop unique projects inspired by culture and the history of art. The residents that volunteers will be engaging with are HIV+ and in long-term care. Since many of residents are lifelong New Yorkers, this project will be an opportunity to get to know the city on a more personal level.
The goal is to generate positivity and bring together Columbia and the community. The desire to merge a love of art and service and general positivity are all that’s needed from a potential participant.
The first meeting will be held January 31, 2019 at 9PM in Wien Hall, Main Lounge at Columbia University.
