Profile Highlight: Room 217 – Care through Music (Port Perry, ON)
As ArtBridges’ Community-Engaged Arts Directory grows, we realize that it’s a bit overwhelming to read through all of the profiles. We’re hoping that by occasionally highlighting some profiles on our blog, you may learn about an initiative that you may not have initially seen in the directory. Also, if you know of a Canadian community-engaged arts for social change initiative that isn’t in our directory, but should be, please let us know! We love and need your input/feedback in building this resource! -Lisa, Content Coordinator at ArtBridges.
“Room 217 is a music-based health arts social enterprise. We provide an innovative approach to health and well-being called music care. Music care enhances quality of life and improves the care experience. Room 217 collaborates with other music-based organizations and practices advancing music as a more primary approach to well-being. We are interested in learning from other arts-based organizations that are planning to or have scaled nationally.”
