Panel: Art & Healing
The creation of The Materiality of Impermanence is about embracing change. It is also about sharing my story with others. The creative process has inspired me to sort through the enormous life changes that diagnosis has wrought, and to express that which I cannot find words for. This, I know, is the power of art. It has transformed the way in which I deal with disease, and I see clearly that it has been essential to my healing process.
On March 24th, 2012, five local breast cancer survivors participated on the panel “Art and Healing”, along with a licensed psychotherapist and a moderator. These courageous women shared their story and inspired us, as survivors, to transform our experience by nurturing our creative selves, and being active participants in our own healing.
