MY HERO HOSTS WEEKEND TO CELEBRATE THE HEALING POWER OF ART
MARCH 30, 2023 – LAGUNA BEACH, CA - The MY HERO Project is hosting a weekend of uplifting poetry, music, art and short films to promote wellness, positive role models and to bring hope to students of all ages around the world.
The weekend kicks off with The Art of Healing — a gala in support of the nonprofit that calls on media and technology to celebrate everyday heroes around the world. MY HERO’s resources are offered, for free, to students, teachers and life learners in 197 countries. MY HERO has been changing lives since 1995 and, on April 29, 2023, we will celebrate this milestone with an evening of music and art at the Laguna Art Museum — an evening that will lift spirits and bring much-needed hope and inspiration to students around the world.
The evening will include live music by the Stuart Pearlman Jazz Ensemble and will feature some stellar honorees:
Gala Honorees Kathy Eldon, Ron Kovic and Greg and Barbara MacGillivrayMY HERO
- Kathy Eldon - Author, filmmaker and poet - founder of Creative Visions Foundation
- Ron Kovic - Artist, NYT's best-selling author, golden globe winning screenwriter and peace activist
- Barbara and Greg MacGillivray - MAX filmmakers capturing amazing stories for over 50 years.
Tickets and sponsorships support our Media Arts programs, teacher training, model curricula and contests that reward and celebrate students who create positive media. Learn more.
The healing power of art is the message of the weekend and noteworthy artists have contributed work for The MY HERO Art Auction. This offers a unique opportunity to support both our organization and the artists who contribute their work. By bidding on these pieces, you can help support our cause while also adding beautiful artwork to your collection.
The celebration will continue on Sunday, April 30, from 11 - 2 pm, when MY HERO hosts a family-friendly program with Live Jazz Music, Laughter Yoga, Poetry Readings, Art and Short Films that celebrate the Art of Healing. The event is FREE for children under 12 and participating artists and takes place at the Laguna Art Museum.
Those not able to join in person can take part in MY HERO’s Global Art of Healing Celebration online. Since April is Poetry and Jazz month, we invite students to create artwork, poetry, dance, or music to celebrate the healing power of art. Participants can share their creations within their communities and online at The MY HERO Project website (myhero.com).
