WHEN ARTISTS AND MUSICIANS THRIVE, SO DO CULTURE AND COMMUNITIES
O+ supports the health of underinsured artists and musicians in the Hudson Valley and beyond through the annual O+ Festival, where they exchange art-making and performances for health and wellness services: the art of medicine for the medicine of art.
Since its inception in 2010, O+ has facilitated thousands of medical, dental, and wellness treatments for artists, musicians, and creatives in Kingston and across the country.
In 2023, we are working to establish a year-round, exchange-based clinic for artists and musicians, expanding the services provided at the O+ Festival into a sustainable model for care available 365 days a year.
Exchanging Art & Music for Healthcare Since 2010
The O+ Artists’ Clinic is the heart of every festival. All O+ artists, musicians, and volunteers receive care from nurses, doctors, dentists, body workers, and mental health professionals. Audiences attend wellness expos, healing arts classes, cycling events, preventative health workshops, and NARCAN & CPR training.
