Crear Para Sanar / Create for Healing

Based on the life of a Dominican immigrant and Brooklyn matriarch, Mercedes is a multidisciplinary arts, humanities, and healing program that addresses aging, mental health, and intergenerational trauma. Through community-based workshops, VR experiences, documentary film, theater, and a gallery exhibit, Mercedes celebrates and supports the resilience of seniors, caregivers, Latinx communities, and the broader public.
