NAMI receives record donation from Erie Arts & Culture

NAMI of Erie County accepted a check for $2,100, a record donation from Erie Arts & Culture.

This grant supports the agency’s Exploring the Arts program that utilizes music therapy as a way to educate children and their families about mental health and wellness.

This year’s Exploring the Arts with NAMI will take place on Tuesday, April 3, 2018, at the ExpERIEnce Children’s Museum. Children will explore how art and creativity can positively affect mental health and wellness. The event is open to the public and Early Connections will have over 60 students in attendance. This year, Exploring the Arts with NAMI will feature local musician Lori Burke, who has written music for Sesame Street.

Support for Exploring the Arts with NAMI is provided in part from a Project Grant from Erie Arts & Culture.
