This is a trauma and violence informed art-based therapy group that seeks to provide supportive opportunities for people who identify as women to explore themselves and their lived experiences. This will be a small group with a maximum of 8 participants. The group will be facilitated by Kelly Kirkham, RP (Qualifying), the Family Violence Prevention Program Coordinator at Wilmot Family Resource Centre.

This approach to art therapy is grounded in the belief that art making itself is therapeutic, and in the belief that each one of us holds the potential to grow and to heal.

Each session will begin with gentle, grounding movement, followed by the creation of art pieces while exploring different art materials in different ways. Participants will be invited to notice what those different materials and processes prompt in their bodies, emotions, thoughts and spirits.

The goal of this group is to focus on curiosity, not technical skill, so there is no need for any previous art experience.

Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.
