Raising awareness about issues related to domestic & dating violence

Come join us in free expression June 1, 2011

Back in April the Family Violence Prevention Center took part in a project called Photovoice. In this project primary and secondary survivors of domestic violence were able to express their feelings about their experiences through art. On Saturday, June 18th FVPC is offering survivors of abuse another opportunity to express themselves.

The workshop is called SoulCollage, and it will offer victims the opportunity to begin creating a visual journal to gain insight, find answers and reflect on their journey through life. The cards that the participants will create will have deep personal meaning that will help them with life’s questions and transitions.

This is a free workshop offered to women who have experienced emotional, verbal, physical or sexual abuse at any point in their life. The workshop will last from 9:00 a.m.-4:30 p.m. and all supplies will be provided. No art experience is necessary.

The workshop will be held in Chapel Hill. To register or ask questions, please contact Ardith at (919) 929-7122 at the Family Violence Prevention Center of Orange County.

This program is supported by the Orange County Arts Commission with funds from the Grassroots Program of the NC Arts Council.  This workshop is a collaboration between FVPC and the Orange County Rape Crisis Center.
