Creative Arts Expression for Community

I am a registered Counsellor with a Graduate Diploma in Creative Art Therapies. I am seeking to run Creative Arts groups within the local and broader community. I envisage open community groups and closed smaller groups for those who share a lived experience such as chronic pain, breast cancer & teen eating disorders. Art Therapy/Creative Expression allows participants the opportunity to communicate thoughts, feelings, concerns, problems, wishes, hopes, dreams and desires in a non-threatening manner. It uses the creative process of art making within an evidence base therapeutic framework.  

These groups will give people not only the opportunity to be a part of a community group but a chance to develop their sense of belonging, self-awareness and acceptance.  I am seeking funding to purchase art materials such as a variety of  paper, paints, pastels, pencils, markers, clay, tools, paint brushes, collage materials, as well as other resources such as blank masks, boxes and fabrics. 

These funds will be essential in assisting me to hopefully create a difference in community, where people can experience a space to connect, create and share to enhance their well-being.

 In this moment I'd like to say "thank you" in advance  for reading, listening and giving.
