Devin Allen is Changing the Baltimore Narrative One Photograph at a Time
Alisa Hyman | 3/23/2018, 6 a.m.
The Institute for Integrative Health, a Baltimore based non-profit organization, has taken an interest in Allen’s work because of his commitment to the healing of communities through the decompression and discussion spawned by his photography. The Institute’s focus is on the social and environmental factors surrounding health and the various ways of helping people heal through art, nature, and other creative means.
In addition to Allen’s photography, which will be on display until May 24, a series of workshops and creative demonstrations will be offered at the Institute focused on Working to Heal Baltimore (April 12 at 6:30 p.m.); Healing through Creative Expression (April 13 and 6:30 p.m.); and Healing through Human Connection: Exercising the Mind, Body, and Soul (April 14 at 11 a.m.)
Brian Berman, president of the Institute for Integrated Health, is excited about the exhibit and the healing and discussion that will occur as a result. “We are all about finding ways to heal people. Devin is healing an entire community through his work. We wanted to celebrate his accomplishments and give the community the tools they need to find their own creative voices.”
