Still Harbor is committed to exploring the links between spirituality and social justice through its programs and partnerships. It supports and accompanies individuals and organizations, regardless of belief or circumstance, as they wrestle with questions of personal meaning, purpose, and social concern.
Still Harbor’s programs are intended to raise awareness about the self and the social conscience and to encourage responsible global citizenship by linking beliefs and knowledge to behavior and action.
Through retreats, training sessions, facilitations, counseling, and more, they serve a wide range of people and organizations, including survivors of trauma or abuse, marginalized communities, university students, service providers, and business people. “Art has always had the power to transform space in my mind.” Still Harbor’s Associate Director, Perry Dougherty, told us. “Not only has the donation of art from The Art Connection to our Center created a powerful space, but it has also truly deepened the overall community experience at the Center by providing a source of reflection, conversation, and joy for all.”

This artwork is installed at their Center for Discernment and Action in South Boston where individuals and organizations come together for reflection, study, discernment, and meaningful exchange. It is here that Still Harbor offers most of their programming and counseling, as well as where others are able to use the space for meetings and retreats. The agency selected 18 original works of art, which you can see by visiting The Art Connection’s blog here.
“As people who facilitate reflective programs regularly, it was great to go through the art selection process with Sarah. She was a master facilitator and helped bring out our group’s aesthetic and vision by contemplating which pieces most belonged here with us. In the end, it was a real team building experience for all of us,” said Ed Cardoza, Still Harbor’s Executive Director.
The selection committee and many other guests came out to enjoy the artwork installed at Still Harbor in October. Please check out this album of photographs from that event.
