Making Matters because…
Tuesday, October 17th 5-8pm at the Awakenings Foundation Gallery

Admission: Free and open to the public

…When we make art, we make culture, and our culture can be one of violence and oppression, or we can make it one of support and respect…when we make art, we reflect ourselves in the materials, giving us an opportunity to know, love, and heal ourselves more deeply…when we make art, we make ourselves.

Making Matters is a space for self-guided art making among individuals affected by sexual violence.

Open to survivors, their loved ones, trauma workers/volunteers, allies and everyone in between. Making Matters welcomes self-exploration, healing, solidarity, community building, and self-care through art making while empowering participants to be in control of their own creative process.

No prior artistic experience is required! Basic art materials will be provided, but please plan to bring your own materials or projects in progress. Participants can feel free to come and go as they please. Light refreshments will be served.
