09 Nov MIOW x ArtCon12 Beneficiary
Music Is Our Weapon is honored to be a beneficiary of ArtCon12 and we would love for you to attend. Come support our mission to standardize music as a form of healthcare in local memory care facilities serving those with Alzheimers and Dementia. Like Art Con, Music Is Our Weapon uses the arts as a vessel to create a cause within a culture. Together, we will provide a platform for community improvement through collaborated engagement. Music is one of the only common bonds that span all cultures regardless of age, race, gender, sexual orientation or religious beliefs. Our sole purpose is to harness the power of music through our program and use it as a vessel to activate the DFW community.
One out of 9 people attending over 65 will be effected by Alzheimer’s or Dementia. One of out every 3 people will be affected by some degree; either as a caregiver or an immediate family member. This is a cause that must be taken seriously. As an organization we are determined to broaden the number of care facilities we serve, in order to further understand the science behind using music as medicine. With the funds raised, Music Is Our Weapon plans to outfit 10 local memory care facilities with our Music Care Program, bringing music to about 1,000 residents in need.
This year is jam packed with new works created on-site by over 150+ artists and are ready for you to bid on during the “Art Con Style” fast paced auctions. Here is a list of this year’s Art Con 12 artists.
