Greetings, harmonious souls! Welcome to another enriching week of our Healing through Community series at We Are Starfish. This time, we immerse ourselves in the world of music—a universal language that transcends boundaries and has the power to foster connection, joy, and profound healing.
The Therapeutic Benefits of Creating Music Together:
Music has an extraordinary ability to evoke emotions, tell stories, and create a shared experience. Whether you're strumming a guitar, playing the piano, or singing in a choir, the act of making music together can be a transformative and therapeutic journey. We'll explore the science behind music's impact on mental well-being and the ways in which it brings people together.
Showcase of Community Members' Musical Projects and Collaborations:
Our community is teeming with musical talent, and we're thrilled to showcase some of the incredible projects and collaborations that have sprung forth:
Through our radio show which has just recently included video as well, we have been talking with Filmmakers and musicians about their music and the power it has to communicate, change and transform lives. The show is also designed to create opportunities for young people that we will soon be exploring the impact those opportunities are creating with the young people we are reaching out to. Each week we sit down with local musicians who actively contribute to community healing through their art. Gain insights into their motivations, the impact of music on well-being, and how they engage with their communities to spread the healing power of music. You can download their App listen to our show live on the radio with KPEO World Community Radio, Subcribe to our YouTube Channel @wearestarfishorg for great new content or catch the replay on our site .
