BY EXCHANGING THE ART OF MEDICINE FOR THE MEDICINE OF ART, O+ EMPOWERS COMMUNITIES TO TAKE CONTROL OF THEIR COLLECTIVE WELLBEING.
O+ empowers communities to take control of their collective wellbeing through art, music and wellness.
O+ curators select a theme, review submissions and invite artists to make large-scale murals as well as sculpture, site-specific installation, film, theater and performance in public spaces. O+ artists receive complimentary health and wellness care in exchange for their creative gifts.
O+ festivals feature concerts in large and intimate venues, including a former Vaudevillian theater, galleries, breweries, even alleys. A music panel reviews submissions and invites bands to participate. O+ musicians receive free health and wellness care in exchange for playing festival shows.
The O+ Artists’ Clinic is the heart of every festival. Underinsured artists, musicians and volunteers receive care from nurses, doctors, dentists, bodyworkers and mental health professionals. Audiences attend wellness expos, healing arts classes, cycling events and NARCAN & CPR trainings.
