The Creative Connection
I have been leading and facilitating an upcycled fashion based workshop for youths in transition. Bringing Free2Be, a program helping youths transition out of the child welfare and foster care system, together with an organization I work with called VIBEarts, who bring creative workshops to underserved communities and their youth, to bring the first of my CreativeCnnction workshops to life. The first CreativeCnnctions: scrappaxx workshop has been going splendidly and the participants are really enjoying the process and the excitement for the final piece is real. If you can’t change the system, do what you can to help define the outcomes. They took my power, but through creation I am regaining it. And I like to think that is something worth passing on.
