2012-2016 HAI Studio & Gallery - Francis Palazzolo

The HAI Studio & Gallery for participatory art was an artistic empowerment zone for adults who confront social marginalization. The parent company Hospital Audiences Inc. was re-conceived and became a newly branded company, the Healing Arts Initiative. While it maintained the same acronym, there was a new location in LIC Queens NY. As the selected documentation below suggests, vast strides were made towards creating opportunities for people in the mental health community in NYC. Unfortunately, this endeavor was short lived. Surprisingly, mismanagement in the parent company resulted in the abrupt and unforeseen of end. See 1994-2012 HAI GAllery & Studio, and 2016-2018 Being Neighborly for more info.

Below, documentation from selected events.
