‘The Healing Cave’ Music Refuge

“Music can heal the wounds where medicine cannot touch”

Though our origins and sufferings were different, among the identification of distress and blessing with one another, we come to see the possibility of transforming trauma. No matter what have you experienced, we hope to bring the public into dialogue the five stages of PTSD and to know the way to healing.

We will have Caleb Liaw from Australia, Simon Yu from Taiwan, Stella Luk and Travis Wong from Hong Kong. They will bring the five stages of PTSD into the picture through music: Outcry, Numbness and Denial, Intrusive Re-experiencing, Working Through, and Completion. With voice navigation, the participants will go into the healing process and face the waves caused by the adversity slowly and let the pain melts into the music.

 

  • This event may be cancelled according to the updated situation of Wuhan coronavirus. Our Gallery will inform the participants five working days in advance by email
