As a past member of "IEATA" (International Expressive Arts Therapy Association) I am happy to create and offer my experience to "Artfully Helping Haiti" through creative art processes for personal and community transformation in coping and doing something active to aid in this devastating tragedy impacting the people of Haiti. There are many ways to offer support and this is one of them where you can join others in your community in coming together and giving from the heart through art. I really hope you'll join me and others who want to make a difference through the process of artmaking.
I am thankful to Bente Mirow at Rileystreet Art -San Rafael, for responding to my idea and making this event possible so quickly. Please pass this information forward & let your friends know!
Tuesday afternoon, January 12th, the worst earthquake in 200 years - 7.0 in magnitude - struck less than ten miles from the Caribbean city of Port-au-Prince, Haiti. The initial quake was later followed by twelve aftershocks greater than magnitude 5.0. Structures of all kinds were damaged or collapsed, from shantytown homes to national landmarks. It is still very early in the recovery effort, but millions are likely displaced, and thousands are feared dead as rescue teams from all over the world are now descending on Haiti to help where they are able.
