Recovering from Domestic Violence and Abuse: Creativity and the Future
This workshop begins by introducing research findings relating to the way in which women who have experienced domestic violence can use creativity as a means of identifying how they would wish their futures to unfold.
It then moves on to an interactive task, where you will use basic art materials to try out for yourself how creativity can be used to explore ideas of what home and family means for them now and in the future.
