About this Training:

Join us for a taste of „community art“ , a creative methodology that can strengthen the resilience of groups to establish and retain well-being. Community art within the Expressive Arts is designed to strengthen the ‘immune system’ of a group, helping to build connection and belonging. We believe that the arts and the act of poiesis support the creation of new social narratives and a culture of hope through art-making. Poiesis, defined by Stephen Levine, is “the capacity of human beings to respond to difficulty and suffering and to transform them through creative acts that bring beauty into the world. This experience is for the BIPOC community and wil be a time to recharge and reconnect with our life visions. The workshop will be experiential and include art making and group work that you can transfer into yor own work and context. All materiales will be provided.
