Imagine an entire school – students, teachers, and administrators – taking time each morning to turn inward together, and listen to a brief mindfulness prompt and world-class music.
The Well's programs combine best practices in arts and wellness and are designed in partnership with those they serve. How do we create our programs? In partnership with others and especially those we serve.
We love collaborating with local, national and international community partners and peoples in a variety of arts programming and mindfulness practices.

A wellspring is an original and bountiful source. At The Well, we seek to collaborate with, feature and learn from original voices in mindfulness, music, movement and creativity via The Wellspring Fellowship.
The Wellspring Fellowship is a four month virtual residency designed to lift up and share the work of our fellows, and to broaden our understanding of how to best serve personal growth, relational empathy and collective, public reconciliation and healing.
Fellows receive a stipend and an opportunity for their programs or process to be featured in The Well’s portal. Additionally, Wellspring Fellows will attend several Well Events (both internal strategy sessions and external public programs) throughout the four-month period.
Each fellowship comes with an intentional agreement to best match our individual fellow’s goals and to determine the most meaningful collaboration.

Bianco works through interrogating constructs from Modern Western Culture, collective memory, and the experience of migration, through the lens of a guest on the Land she inhabits. This allows her to think about identity and belonging as something constantly being renegotiated and in motion, in deep relation and conversation with the environment and the community she is immersed in.Her explorations use her family legacy of labor, craft, and storytelling, as strategies to build knowledge and understanding of Place, experiencing while remembering. Her work has been showcased and published in Argentina, Canada, Mexico, New Zealand, and the United States.
This residency is made possible by NEA MATCH Fellowship with Wave Pool Gallery and U.C.
