Program Description

Event Details

This multi-sensory experience combines music and artistic experimentation with water-based inks in an active meditation. Through music-guided meditation and a process of artistic discovery and play, participants are encouraged to access and reflect on their emotional experience and explore potential pathways toward healing.


Alison Lee Schroeder’s artwork and personal identity have been shaped by three countries. Raised in the United States by a Colombian mother and Minnesotan father, she has spent most of her adult life in Mexico, and is a wife to and mother of Mexicans, now living in the D.C. area. In a constant mental and emotional migration between these cultures and identities, her artwork often references the disorienting experience of not being either inside or outside, as well as that of being both inside and outside.

Schroeder studied painting at the Rhode Island School of Design and Fine Arts at the Autonomous University of the State of Morelos (Mexico) where she received a full scholarship from the National Council for Science and Technology.

Her work has been exhibited in Washington, D.C., Mexico City. New York, Paris, Los Angeles, and in other parts of Mexico and the United States, where she has also worked as a curator, gallery director, and commissioner for planning and programming of cultural development.
