  • Dandelions in the Concrete: The Art of Healing

    Please come join us in celebration and community for one of our favorite evenings of the quarter. Dandelions is an open event that welcomes students, faculty, community members, and their friends and families to create a space that cultivates a sense of transformation and healing for all bodies and people. There will be arts and crafts, food, storytelling, self-care practices, and creative performances.

    Dandelions is also a night dedicated to relationship building and practices of transformative justice within communities at DePaul and Chicago. AND, it is the perfect opportunity to meet new people!

    **Please note that we have changed the time to 630-9. Dandelions will still be held in the Sac Pit. This quarter’s theme is: The Art of Healing, reenergize and rejuvenate! Join us before the event for a Reiki class with Misty DeBerry from 430-530 in Levan 401. A makeup class with Mary Hazboun from 530-630 in Levan 403. Don’t forget to bring a book there will be a book swap table!
