There is no doubt that in today’s world, public health has become a hot topic that needs to be addressed. By bringing the public and public health researchers together, LIGHT believes that open dialogue can begin and critical conversations can be the catalyst for reshaping the future.
St. Louis, Missouri – June 15, 2022 – Leaders trigger generational healing and transformation (LIGHT) has officially announced its first annual virtual LIGHT Festival to be held on Friday, June 17, 2022. LIGHT is an anti-establishment, anti-racist space for critical conversations and public health dialogue that publishes creative and literary works, such as art, letters, stories (fiction and non-fiction) and poetry, by diverse authors and artists, particularly from populations underrepresented in public health. LIGHT aims to advance work that pushes the boundaries of public health and creates healthy conversations around public health.
In an effort to bridge the gap between public health and public health researchers, LIGHT is organizing its first festival that will allow individuals to connect through art, the letter, stories and poetry as experiences experiences of healing and health. Everyone in the field and all members of the public – artists, poets, practitioners, storytellers, etc. – are invited to attend.
LIGHT recently launched a call for submissions for its first issue of the semiannual literary journal in public health. The finalists will be announced during the festival and their submissions will be featured in the journal which will be released in early 2023.
The event will begin Friday at 8:00 a.m. and run until 6:00 p.m. (CDT). The day will be filled with amazing speakers, workshop leaders, yoga instructors and a panel of public health researchers, all focused on various creative mediums – poetry, illustration and amination, comic book making, art culinary, storytelling and mindfulness.
In a recent interview, one of LIGHT’s editors, Dr Juliet Iwelunmor of Saint Louis University, College of Public Health and Social Justice, said, “We are very excited about this festival. . With everything going on in the world, whether overseas or right here in our own backyard, opening a dialogue and having conversations about public health is something that needs to happen, and it needs to happen. produce now. Instead of waiting for things to get worse, we are taking action to bring everyone together again and start the healing process by centering the public around public health. It’s a conversation that needs to happen, and inclusivity is the top priority. Everyone’s voice should be heard.
