About the Workshop
What does truth mean to you? Why is it important for us to access our truth? Jade will be facilitating a discussion surrounding these questions and sharing why and how writing can be beneficial to wellbeing. Jade will guide you through various writing exercises and you’ll leave the session with a written piece about your truth.
Art Liberation Week
Art Liberation Week aims to decolonise art and creative practice. In practice this means that whatever your experience, you can create art. We strongly encourage you to try as many of the workshops as you can, push yourself out of your comfort zone and our wonderful facilitators will guide and care for you during this process.
The week offers an opportunity for people of colour in York to connect and build a supportive community; a space where we can freely express ourselves and experience joy.
