Los Angeles, California: The city of LA united together and has created a beautiful experience. The ‘We Rise‘ initiative is a partnership between health experts and artists. A peaceful colorful alter was created honoring lost loved ones, and beautiful murals showcasing survivors of violence are the beginning of a healing process.
Since the end of 2019, the world has been experiencing a pandemic no one was prepared for. In the third quarter of 2021 COVID is under control in the US but India, Brazil, and other countries are still struggling. World wide mental health is a huge issue that goes unchecked too often. Art therapy has proven to be a powerful tool to heal from pain and traumatic experiences.
The streets of LA are sparking awareness and helping start the healing process. The aim is to make connections through grief. IMUer’s check out the video above for some beautiful artwork and learn more about the initiative.
