Please join Purple Moon Dance Project's (PMDP) second Community Healing
Garden Festival. The Community Healing Garden Festival will bring together
a diverse group of leading women health professionals, organizations,
agencies and advocates to celebrate the lives of women and elders living
with life threatening illnesses, women in recovery from substance abuse and
surviving domestic violence. Dance and music performances, art making, free
bodywork, health workshops and low-cost to free resources will be provided
throughout the day. The Community Healing Garden Festival was created to
not only celebrate life, but to provide a unique opportunity for
non-traditional outreach methods to a broad and diverse community by
providing health resources through the use of the arts!
