We would like to invite you to join us in Sound-Inspired Art Therapy Workshop, an experimental format designed by Nitya Ramchandran, in collaboration with Eufonia Festival and Stillpoint Spaces Berlin.

The intention here is to experiment with a synaesthetic merging of different artistic mediums, i.e., opening up a field for new discoveries, connections, and possibilities. No previous knowledge of visual arts, music, or art therapy is needed.
Limited capacity, please book your seat in advance.
