Vox Storytellers: Artist Voices

52922947_2223471981052558_3882743722273669120_o.jpg

Vox Culture is launching Vox Storytellers: Artist Voices. The event will host six thoughtfully curated speakers, all Houston-based artists representing diverse backgrounds and artistic disciplines who will share their individual tales as to how mental health has played a role in their art work. Artists presenting include:

▪ Betirri Bengtson ▪ Vanessa Longoria ▪ Robyn Blodgett ▪ Johnathon M. Espinoza ▪ Nguyen T. Nguyen ▪ Ruby Rivera (TX Salsa Congress)

Sharing stories goes back to the most fundamental ways of building human connections. Vox Culture feels that it pays to sometimes dig back through our layers of modernity and embrace the calm poise of storytelling; all in an attempt to know each other better. The goal of this event is to connect Houstonians together in a deeper, more thoughtful way.

Time: Saturday March 23rd at 2:45 - 5:45

Place: Cafeza, 1720 Houston Ave, Houston TX 77007

Emotionally Healthy Relationships - Defined & Connected

defined_and_connected.jpg

Your in-laws. Your parents. Your spouse. Your cherished friendships. Navigating the relationships that matter most to us as adults requires more than good intentions. We need to develop strong guiding principles that can help us do more than coexist, avoid, or just accommodate. In this workshop, discover how to stay true to yourself (defined) while staying engaged with the people you love (connected). This paradigm is a true relationship game-changer! You'll leave with a stronger understanding and practical tools to engage in healthier relationships. 

When: Saturday, February 9, 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Where: Access Church, 1888 Stebbins Dr, Ste 103

Taught by John Lin and Trisha Taylor.
