As a part of the NAGB’s joint initiative “We Gatchu: Sanctuary After The Storm”, we have teamed up with artist and art therapist Susan Moir Mackay to bring Create Space to those impacted by Hurricane Dorian.
Create space is a safe art space which is open to everyone. It is a space for talking or not talking. A space for emotions or quietness after Dorian. A space for reflecting or becoming absorbed in art making.
There will be art supplies which can be used in many ways. Even if you have never used art materials you are welcome and there will be assistants who will be with you during sessions.
Working with art materials after a crisis can be a tool for restoring a sense of safety, connection and rebuilding agency and grounding for individuals and communities. This is our intention for Create Space.
The first of three such events will be held at the NAGB on Friday, September 13th, 10 a.m. - 1 p.m. This event is free and open to the public.
