Evening Event at TIIH

At the time of the Consortium Members' Dinner in May 2018, the Institute for Integrative Health will be hosting the renowned photography exhibit - A Beautiful Ghetto, Three Years Later: A Conversation About Healing - featuring photographs taken by Devin Allen during the uprising in Baltimore in 2015. This powerful exhibition, which coincides with the third anniversary of the protests sparked by the death of a young Baltimore man - Freddie Gray - is a part of a broader Institute initiative focused on the use of art and nature as tools for helping people recover from trauma.

In complement to Devin Allen's photography exhibit, several panels from Institute Scholar Paul Dieppe's "How Are You Healing?" research to understand the healing experience. As a preview to the full exhibition to be displayed at the ICIMH conference, selected panels on display at the Institute reflecting healing from grief and loss.

Presentations & Dialogue:

To kick-off dialogue amongst attendees, a short program is planned to discuss the evolution of integrative health which goes beyond the clinic to consider how individuals live, work and play - including social and economic factors that contribute to trauma. Furthermore, in the presence of the powerful images in the A Beautiful Ghetto exhibition, as well as the drawings and quotations on the How Are You Healing panels, the discussion will be grounded on the power of art and creative expression to inspire healing in individuals and communities.

The program will begin with welcoming comments from Lorenzo Cohen and Brian Berman. Following Dr. Berman's comments on bridging clinical care with community health, he will introduce the artist Devin Allen, a Baltimore-native, who won national attention when his photograph of the Baltimore protest was featured on the cover of Time magazine. Mr. Allen will discuss his healing journey using photography at first as a way to try to understand the trauma and pain occurring in his Baltimore community to the power of creative expression to heal personal wounds and art's ability to transcend boundaries and provide reflection to explore how we can better heal ourselves and care for one another. Following Mr. Allen's comments, the group will open for questions and dialogue.
