STATA and Texas art therapists are currently looking for ways to help those affected by Hurricane Harvey. If you have a volunteer or relief project that you would like to share with us, please email STATA at stxarttherapy@gmail.com.

Harvey Arts Recovery Project

HARP (Harvey Arts Recovery Project) is the partnering of local creative arts therapists, community artists/ musicians, and figures within several non-for- profits, government, and arts organizations throughout the City of Houston to collaborate and aid one another in the recovery and relief of fellow Houstonians in the wake of Harvey.

HARP’s most recent endeavor has been the planning and future implementation of Harvey Healing Days, a series of days that host 90 minute sessions led by Art and Music Therapists and yoga instructors to facilitate positive ways for first responders, evacuees, and others affected to cope and express via music, art making, and movement. The inaugural day is set to take place Saturday, November 4th and will be serving both the adults and children's still displaced from their homes and typical walk of life during this event. 

The TMC CAT team will organize four sessions; November 4th, one in the beginning of February, one in April, and one in August for the "anniversary."

The Americans for the Arts website has posted a list of ways to donate and current relief projects. See here: https://www.americansforthearts.org/by-topic/disaster-preparedness/hurricane-harvey-relief

Art Show and Fundraising

The 2017 art show included artwork donated to raise money for Hurricane Harvey Relief. The art show raised $300 that will be used to support relief support projects. We hope to use the money to fund art kits for evacuees, wellness workshops, and community art projects.
