The article is the result of a joint reflection by two artist-researchers on artistic-pedagogical practices of compassion and poetics of care in academia. Through two socially engaged art projects carried out in two different universities - at the Federal University of the State of Rio de Janeiro (UNIRIO) and at Queensborough Community College at the City University of New York (CUNY-QCC) - the article proposes a reflection on art as a collective practice of well-being and peaceful resistance. Through meditation, and somatic and artistic alternatives, the article invites us to contemplate the blue sky beyond the dense clouds it carries - that is, it invites us into the imagination of other possible worlds.
