Write a poem on one, two, or all three of the topics and bring it to the event. You may also express yourself through song or art work. If you would like to present your work at the event, come prepared to share for up to 3 minutes. This will be in open mic style event and you will sign up to present in the chat on the day of the event. You do not need to share to attend. All survivors and the larger community who support us are invited to attend. We hope to see you there! Registration is now open.

HEALING H’ARTS WORKSHOPS

No art experience necessary – It’s the process not the product”

Creative Healing H’Arts Activity For Survivors With DID

Visions of Hope (Vision Boards)

As a survivor we are often reminded of, and triggered back into our past. During this 3 hour art workshop, we are given the opportunity to look at ourselves in the present moment and think about what we want for our future. What are our hopes for the next month, the next year, or even the next 5 years. We will take time to explore our hearts’ desires and transform those desires into an art form called a vision board (I like to call them Visions of Hope)
