YES! Magazine Highlights O+’s ‘Quietly Radical’ Mission

The “quietly radical” mission and work of O+ is featured in a story for YES!, which aims to provide rigorous reporting on the positive ways communities are responding to social problems.

“The Unique Arts Festival Where Performers Play for Their Health Care” includes interviews with a number of underinsured or uninsured musicians for whom access to the health and wellness services in the O+ Artists’ Clinic “was paramount.” It also features insights from some of O+’s on-the-ground providers, including Dr. Mark JosefskiDr. Tom CingelCynthia Kim, LCSW-R, and nurse Shannon Light, who directs the Artists’ Clinic.

The article looks back at the nonprofit’s yearround efforts in Kingston, Poughkeepsie and Newburgh and ahead to the May O+ Festival in North Adams, MA, where organizers aim to replicate the impact of O’s work and mission with a locally-based team of activists, artists and providers.
