Interview with O+ Festival
The demands of being a professional artist can take a toll, and without their health, a maker can lose their livelihood. O+ is an organization that helps artists and musicians gain access to health care. They host annual one-day and weekend-long celebrations, called O+ Festivals, during which underinsured artists and musicians create and perform in exchange for a variety of services donated by local doctors, dentists, and complementary care providers.
In this interview, Joe Concra (Painter, Co-Founder, and Executive Director of O+) and Kathleen Murray, (Director of Communications at O+) go into more detail about the organization and what we can expect at their event.
