3rd Annual Steps to End Violence Against Women Walk on Sunday July 27, 2014
“Her Life, Her Canvas: Survivors supporting Survivors” is an art-based peer to peer support group for women and youth survivors of violence (any type, not only domestic violence) and abuse coordinated and delivered by Interim Place. The group provides women and youth with a safe space where they can meet and provide mutual support to one another in a place which promotes respect, trust and warmth and empowers these individuals to make changes and decisions to enhance their lives through the use of arts-based therapy methods i.e. poetry, crafting, painting, photography and drumming.
