Choreographer, dancer and longtime registered nurse, Tara Rynders partnered with her employer, Rose Medical Center, to bring an immersive theater project to life in its own hallways, with the help of a grant award from Arts in Society. The project titled “First, Do No Harm”, evokes in its audience a deeper compassion and new appreciation for the work of nurses, and a sense of pride and recognition for the nurses in attendance. First, Do No Harm is part of a year long project, engaging the community and health care professionals in dialogue about compassion fatigue, grief and human frailty.
Arts in Society grantees were announced at the 10th Annual RedLine EPIC Gala on April 19th, 2018 in Denver.
