In April of 2016, The Art of Life After project will be hosting a weekend workshop series concluding in a community performance. The workshops will be both lead and attended by pre-registered community members and leaders who identify as survivors. In leadership roles, we will focus especially on highlighting PoC identified community members to counter-act the oppressive narratives in fields of recovery and healing from violence. The workshops' content will vary from creative, expressive, movement and educational practices each with a common goal of supporting healing, self-care skills, and community building.
