O+ empowers communities to take control of their collective wellbeing through the exchange of art, music and wellness.

O+ (pronounced O Positive) supports the health of underinsured artists and musicians through festivals at which they exchange art-making and performances for wellness services: the art of medicine for the medicine of art.

O+ helps strengthen community wellbeing with Narcan and CPR trainings, expos of local health-and wellness-related nonprofits, cycling events, classes in the healing arts, mural tours and healthcare forums.

Exchanging Art & Music for Healthcare Since 2010

O+ Festival Weekend

Art

O+ curators select a theme, review submissions and invite artists to make murals, sculptures, installations, films, workshops and performances in public spaces. O+ artists receive complimentary health and wellness care in exchange for their creative gifts.

Music

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.

Wellness

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.

We are creative radical compassionate O+
