Learning Circle: Global Healing Practices
July 28, 2018, at 11 a.m.
In conjunction with the “Art and Healing” exhibition, Mia is co-hosting a series of workshops and discussions with artists and facilitators to open up opportunities for dialogue and allow visitors to creatively engage around important issues of injustice and healing. Some conversations are intended to offer strategies for self-care and healing; some are geared toward supporting learning, growth, and understanding around racial justice; and some are designed for visitors to come together to explore art as a powerful vehicle for addressing injustice and a tool for community healing.
This circle, “Global Healing Practices,” will explore healing from a worldwide perspective. Building on cultural ways of knowing, facilitator Owen Duckworth will mobilize individuals to build community and advocate for themselves while laying the groundwork to challenge systems that isolate and oppress.
