The Our Voice Project Presents: Art Healing
June 11 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Survivors are invited to gather for an afternoon of fellowship, poetry, collage, crafting, coloring and music!
At HopeWorks, we use the arts in three important ways to accomplish our mission: to support survivors in their healing; as a vehicle to increase awareness; and to imagine creative solutions to bring about social change.
The creative arts are a means of helping people to improve and enhance physical, mental and emotional well being. The creative process involved in artistic self-expression helps people in a variety of ways. When we create art and reflect on it, the processes increase self-awareness, initiate awareness of others, and help us cope with stress and traumatic experiences. Creative expression facilitates ending or finding solutions to conflicts and problems.
