“The Art of Healing” Virtual Presentation Moderated by Judge Charles Williams Promotes Healing and Racial Equality Through Performance

Florida CraftArt “The Art of Healing” Performance

The Pinellas Chapter of the Florida Association for Women Lawyers (PFAWL) is hosting a virtual presentation: “The Art of Healing” on Thursday, September 24, 2020, from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m. 

The live premiere of “The Art of Healing” took place in February 2020. It is an original Florida CraftArt production designed to increase awareness about racism, tolerance, and acceptance. Performances included black and white performers, from dancers trained at The Julliard School to a singer who has graced the stage with Aretha Franklin and John Legend.

With the national and worldwide focus on these areas, “The Art of Healing” uses performance art, including acting, dance, poetry, and music, to encourage its audience to have conversations about these topics to foster positive change.

The virtual presentation of “The Art of Healing” will feature four ten-minute video presentations, and guests will be able to hear directly from performers during Q&A sessions. The virtual event will be moderated by the Honorable Charles Williams, Circuit Court Judge in the 12th Judicial Circuit. Judge Williams is passionate about his commitment to diversity and inclusion and has been recognized with several awards for his work promoting equality and justice.
