It’s no secret that some of our best, most talented artists and musicians struggle to survive and don’t have health care insurance. The O+ Festival was designed to provide immediate help, by enabling artists and musicians to get free or reduced medical and dental care in exchange for their participation, as well as to shine a spotlight on the issue. It has been a hit, and this year the Festival – now in its third year and scheduled for October 5, 6 and 7 – will feature over 40 bands performing at various venues around Uptown Kingston. There will also be 41 artists, whose work will be displayed on building walls, in murals and storefront windows; a consultation with performance artist Linda Montano; a free health expo; and tai chi, yoga and “gong bath” sessions.
