The Writing on the Wall: a writing workshop in companionship with visual art

02/07/2019 06:30 PM - 03/14/2019 08:30 PM CST

Description

We believe art is a pathway to healing and breaking silence. Through a vein of writing called Ekphrastic Writing, art inspires art. At Awakenings we are kicking off 2019 by using the survivor artwork currently on exhibit in the gallery to inspire, encourage, and heal others through the creation of more art - this time in written words. Over the course of six weeks, Awakenings will offer this free writing workshop course of six two-hour sessions for survivors of sexual violence and allies. Awakenings Program Director and writer Jeri Frederickson will use Awakenings' art gallery of survivor artwork to lead survivors, allies, advocates, and writers through writing exercises in poetry and prose. All levels of comfort in writing are welcome; whether you are just starting to write or you are a published writer - this is for you! 

Find solidarity, find community, find your voice and kock off 2019 with writing and healing.

Free
