Inspirit is dedicated to uplifting the human spirit by providing live, quality performances to isolated people who reside in restricted environments, such as healthcare facilities, and are otherwise isolated from society. We are very excited about the potential of this project to help this segment of people in our community who are often overlooked. Our performances enrich the soul and promote wellness through the healing power of the performing arts. In carrying out our mission, Inspirit seeks to create a social awareness of people who are isolated from the world at large.
Inspirit was founded by Ginny Meredith in 2001. Having recently experienced a breast cancer diagnosis and treatment at age 41, Ginny, a musician herself, realized the healing potential of music through her own experience living with cancer. As a result of this experience, Ginny was moved and motivated to bring this healing power to others.
Inspirit utilizes local professional performers of a variety of styles of music to spread the joy and healing power of music to those less fortunate. Inspirit is a community-based, not-for-profit organization whose mission is to bring music and the performing arts to nursing homes, hospitals, rehabilitation facilities, children’s shelters, mental health centers, youth detention facilities and other facilities that serve people in need.
Inspirit has greatly impacted many people from a large variety of ages, cultures, ethnicities and economic backgrounds. We utilize performers from a variety of backgrounds as well. The appreciation we have received from the facilities, family members and friends of the people we serve, the people themselves, the facility staff, and the community at large has been extremely overwhelming.
Inspirit is based on similar organizations throughout the country, including Bread and Roses, in San Francisco, and Heart and Soul in Salt Lake City. There are others as well popping up, including Tidewater Arts Council in Virginia and Musicians on Call in New York City. Palm Beach County can be proud to have an organization such as Inspirit be a part of its arts culture.
