Emily Bhargava

Emily Bhargava, Director of Connection Lab, is an artist and community organizer who has been leading community art projects for more than 20 years.  As a muralist, a stained glass artist, a mosaic artist and a facilitator, Emily has seen the power of art to bring people together and to transform spaces into powerful forces for change.  Emily often works on the border between art and public health, using art to share health information, to increase community capacity, and to increase engagement in building healthy communities.  She believes that community members have the power to make change in their own homes, neighborhoods, towns, states, and countries.
