ART & WELLNESS
Join us for weekly guided meditation sessions that will be broadcasted live on SAM's Facebook page. This programme is part of a new initiative by SAM titled Project Happiness, which offers participants opportunities to learn about mindfulness and mental well-being, while experiencing art in new ways. Each week, participants will go through a mindfulness meditation practice inspired by selected works in SAM's collection. See you every Wednesday evening!
