Calling Black-identified creatives and the creatively inclined!
Ever wondered what it would be like to make art in a therapeutic way while in a culturally relevant environment? Want to explore more deeply Afro-Caribbean healing rituals and your own communities’ knowledge?
Are you curious about the possible ways eastern mindfulness practices and western psycho-education intersect? Want to do so in a queer/trans/gender non-binary friendly space?

All art materials provided.
Refreshments will be served.
Reclaim, Recover & Rebirth: A Focus on Black Identity is a series of 5 art-based wellness workshops that feature visual art-making techniques, opening meditations and thematic guided discussion, sharing Afro-Caribbean ancestral healing rituals as well as Western psychological frameworks and education. It is facilitated by Belinda Ageda and Robin Akimbo, in collaboration with Workman Arts and Tangled Arts + Disability.
Artist facilitators Belinda Ageda and Robin Akimbo will provide gentle, expressive and effective tools to self-healing, helping to widen your path to personal empowerment and self-awareness.
