Webinar Description
This one-hour presentation will explore an international project that blends a daily practice of mindful gratitude and community art and asks the question: "If art is an expression of self, what would gratitude look like?" Applying research from the fields of positive psychology, mental health and wellness, public health and the built environment and the belief that playtime and creativity is a terrific form of therapy for all ages, The Gratitude Graffiti Project aims to reframe the perspective of an entire community to take the time to be more grateful for the places we live, the work that we do, the people in our lives, and the life we are given. Successes, challenges, and ways to implement this project in your hometown or location will be discussed.

Following the webinar, participants will:
  • describe the purpose of The Gratitude Graffiti Project to transform communities with the intention of creating public art through the lens of expressing one's gratitude.
  • identify ways of implementing The Gratitude Graffiti Project in different venues, with different age groups, languages and locations.
  • demonstrate how this project has become a vehicle for building community, an outlet for wellness and healing, and can transform a "place" into a living work of art.
About Candice Davenport, BSN, RN, MPH, MCHES

Candice Davenport toggles between her professional work as a community health educator and nurse for almost 15 years, co-founder of The Gratitude Graffiti Project, and her alter-ego as "Mom" to three young children. As a health educator applying adult learning theory, she recognizes adults are experiential learners who need to be engaged in order to change attitudes or behaviors. Through this project, Candice brings the playful visual and tactile application of community art as a way to creatively express gratitude at a community-wide level and change personal and collective attitudes of how we see the world. She is an advocate for promoting the relationship between health, well-being, and the built environment. In 2013, Candice was recognized by The Project for Public Spaces as a Citizen Placemaker for work on The Gratitude Graffiti Project and other innovative placemaking projects such as the first Walking School Bus program in her town of Maplewood, New Jersey.
