Drawing from Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s words and Edith Kramer’s teachings on being “maladapted” to injustice and oppression, the presenters will provide context and inspiration for using daily art and creativity to build social cohesion, resilience, and, ultimately, change. In this daylong master class participants will learn easy-to-follow instructions for creating non-threatening, resilience-building individual and group art projects. Consideration will be given to eliciting personal stories of cultural strengths and group resilience narratives. Examples of case material and arts from various communities experiencing stress will be discussed to illustrate the importance of fostering strengths, resilience, and sublimation in the art room. Through storytelling, deep listening, art exchange, and group creation, participants will learn how to support a culture of resilience, resistance, and inclusivity among the diverse populations they find within their art rooms and other treatment settings.
