A Window Between Worlds (AWBW)

AWBW’s trauma informed art workshops offer a process of self-expression, self-exploration, and self-interpretation.  Unlike art therapy, there is no therapist or other authority responsible for interpretation or diagnosis.  Each participant is in charge of their own creative exploration. The AWBW philosophy is grounded in the idea that the art workshops are a “Window of Time” — a safe, non-judgmental space where participants can authentically express their identity, hopes, dreams, experiences and truths. Workshops typically run 60-90 minutes.
