Art Can Heal The Soul
The program, run by the Nanaimo Womens Resource Society, aims to unite homeless and at risk women/youth/girls who with professional artists from their community. The artists are inspired individuals who can act as mentors to homeless/at risk women and girls who don’t always have an opportunity to use the arts as an expressive form.
Art for me has always been a powerfully healing tool, something that I can grab on to when times are tough, something that is MINE and allows me to express myself when words fail me. My crafts have literally saved my life and kept me sane, and as a teenage run away it was drawing and photography that got me through. I truly feel this program has the potential to empower and inspire women to want better, to know they DESERVE better, and help them find their voice.
