CABVI Offers Coffee Talks Via Zoom

CINCINNATI (October 27, 2021) – CABVI is inviting members of our community who are blind or visually impaired to join us via Zoom for a Coffee Talk on Friday, Nov. 5, 2021 from 10am-11:30am. Coffee Talks are free, open events for anyone affected by vision loss to learn more about related topics.

 

Both music and art can play a variety of roles in our lives as well as being therapeutic. CABVI Music Therapist Jen Ortiz and guest Art Therapist Charlotte Reed will explain about both modalities and some of the benefits, as well as considerations for vision loss. Participants will also learn about the current music therapy program at CABVI, the local non-profit Art Equals, and some recent collaborations of art within the music therapy program at CABVI.

 

Please call or email Crystal to RSVP at 513-221-2182 or crystal.turner@cincyblind.org by Thursday, June 4. The Zoom link or phone number will be provided prior to the event.
