Event description: 

This season, we invite you to a two day workshop on the topic of healing spaces. With the growing need for more therapeutic, spiritual, wellness, and restorative justice spaces, where do we begin to find our way in personal and collective healing?

In this workshop, we will look deeply into our own creative practices to identify core values, explore ways to tell our stories, and strategize career paths that honor our whole selves. A guest Healer/Artist will guide our healing and artistic discussion and a guest Art Advisor will lead a workshop on storytelling and navigating creative career paths.

During the workshop, participants are free to bring their whole selves, be vulnerable and open, and are expected to hold space for the concerns of others. We will collaborate on activities and final presentations on the topic of healing.

Artist Ye Qin Zhu will help facilitate the workshop. Zhu is on the team that spearheaded the Diary Disks project, Phase One of the New Haven COVID-19 Memorial (2020–ongoing), and the artist behind the public arts installation CONSTELLATION, 2021, on Governors Island, NYC. The Guest Healer/Artist and Art Advisor to be determined at this time.

Workshop dates are October 15 and 16 from 2-5pm. Registration is open to all schools and disciplines. Participation is limited. Please register early and provide a brief statement of interest.
