The Shingwauk Residential Schools Centre is currently hosting an exhibit of artwork created by women from Minwaashin Lodge-Aboriginal Women’s Support Centre. The exhibit features ‘body-map’ images created by seven women in a three day arts based workshop on the healing experiences of Aboriginal Women.
This workshop was part of a collaborative research initiative between Minwaashin Lodge and Concordia University. The workshop was facilitated by art therapist Lucy Lu and Felice Yuen, Assistant Professor in the Department of Applied Human Sciences of Concordia University. The goal of the project was to gain an understanding of the conditions that contribute or challenge Aboriginal women in their process of healing from violence or the impacts of violence.
The exhibit is open from now until the end of November and additional details about the exhibit and related events can be seen here.
