Gallery Night

You're Seen. You're Heard. You Matter.

We were proud to host a reception to celebrate the opening of a special art exhibit, Inspiring Change; The Photographic Journey of Chip Duncan.

This exhibit is the first in our series, You’re Seen. You’re Heard. You Matter, and will be on display in our Chavez Clinic through Fall, 2020.

For over 35 years, Chip Duncan, Milwaukee based world-renowned filmmaker and photographer, has been documenting the effects of war and humanitarian crises on everyday people in developing countries. Transcending the pain, his photos capture the beauty, joy, and innocence that brings people together and inspires change.

Art is integral to Sixteenth Street and the work we do here.

Art is critical in our care for children. Our behavioral health team and child and adolescent day treatment program use art therapy as part of the children’s treatment--- both in the clinic and in our school-based care. Our Asthma Team uses art to teach children about asthma triggers, and our environmental health team infuses art in after-school programming to help connect kids to their natural surroundings. 

But it goes beyond that -- when we display art in the clinic, it creates the warm and beautiful environment our patients deserve when they are here --- both inside and outside of the clinic. When we involve our patients in art --- they see themselves in a new light. What cannot be overvalued is celebrating through art the resilience, hopefulness, and beautify of people who often feel not seen, not heard, not valued.

Inspiring Change; The Photographic Journey of Chip Duncan, will remain at our Chavez Clinic for one year. Please feel free to contact Cindy Cooper at cindy.cooper@sschc.org for a guided viewing.

Stay tuned for our 2020 series with photographer Leo Purman.

Health Equity Summit:
Empower a Healthier Milwaukee

 

Canceled

We’ve made the difficult decision to cancel our rescheduled 2020 Health Equity Summit; Empower a Healthier Milwaukee due to COVID-19 related precautions and restrictions around large gatherings. We appreciate your interest and are disappointed that it will not take place as planned.
We will be holding a Health Equity Summit in the spring of 2021 that will include the previously planned conversation on empowerment along with other dynamic topics under the broader umbrella of health equity innovation. Although we plan to hold the 2021 Summit in person, we acknowledge the significant uncertainties we face and are prepared to adapt quickly if needed.
