This unique experience aims to support survivors and victims of violence and crime, offering a space for healing, empowerment, and raising awareness within our community.
Postcards of Courage will encourage a creative journey that allows you to express yourself, connect with others, and make a positive impact. Engage in postcard-making, crafting messages of healing and hope for survivors. Each postcard symbolizes support, reminding survivors they are not alone and that their stories matter. Each postcard will be given to a survivor in a time of need through a local organization supporting survivors and their needs.
This is a free drop-in event featuring collage-style art making and is appropriate for all ages and skill levels.
