Gallery Wellness Festival 2023
This year's Gallery Wellness Festival focuses on human connections and the importance of connecting deeply with our emotions and people around us. Families can experience art-inspired wellness programmes, with art as a tool to revitalise the entirety of one’s being in activating the five senses: sight, smell, sound, touch and taste. Here's taking a closer look at some of the programme highlights that you and your family can look forward to:
