Trauma survivors are often threatened with their very lives if they say the words that describe the trauma. When words are too painful to find or speak, art softly sits down next to us and whispers “this is the way out,” safely making tangible what we hold inside our bodies. Art turns intense and dense feelings into a physical thing you can look at, analyse, learn from and if comfortable, share with others. Art is medicine. In this webinar, I will share my experience using art to help myself and my community heal and connect.
