Our theme at the benefit this year is 'The Art of Resilience.' The ability to adapt well in the face of adversity is severely limited by trauma, but through practice of creative arts survivors of trauma can learn skills to help reduce stress, become more self aware, and build safe and meaningful relationships. Through the art of resilience, healing and prevention go hand in hand! We would love to hear your story - how have you utilized the arts for resilience in your life? Email us at 


First Aid Arts is a non-profit organization training people how to use creativity and the arts to heal from tragedy and trauma.

It's first aid for the heart. 


Watch this 2-minute video. We live in a beautiful world that holds tragedy and trauma. Healing must go beyond the physical aid. First Aid Arts is a nonprofit that provides "first aid for the heart", confronting mental, emotional and spiritual trauma. We train people how to express what's beyond words, connecting with themselves and others, finding hope and healing through creativity.
