For PTSD and trauma recovery, art helps survivors process traumatic events in a new way. When words fail, art can provide an outlet for survivors.
Women are twice as likely to develop PTSD after a traumatic event (apa.org) and make up a growing number of trauma survivors. Due to lack of resources and access to licensed art therapy practitioners, many survivors miss out on this valuable healing tool.
Through quarterly, artist-led community events, and using creative mediums like drawing, painting, coloring, and sculpture, This is Jane Project’s Healing Arts program provides women and non-binary trauma survivors with artistic healing activities for their healing toolkits.
Please join us quarterly on Zoom.
HEARTS events are always free and include all of the supplies, registration required.
We know museums aren’t always affordable, but found many exhibition spaces across the nation who offer free daily admission, or host free admission days monthly. From contemporary art, cultural centers to ancient artifacts, we highlighted some interesting museums ideal for our healing Janes to check out.
