Join us on Thursday, September 8 for a workshop that provides an opportunity to create meaningful representations of our true selves, addiction, recovery, and the emotions they evoke by designing and decorating a mask.
The project is about self-reflection – examining how we present ourselves to the outside world and understanding how that may differ from how we feel about ourselves. It’s also about learning to talk about our addictions and weaknesses without stigma or shame.
If we’re honest with ourselves, we’re all addicted, or know someone who’s addicted, to something – caffeine, gambling, eating, cell phones, gaming, alcohol, marijuana, prescription drugs, or street drugs.
Presenting our true selves to the world is challenging, and we hope this activity will inspire participants to externalize their feelings and gain insight into themselves and others experiencing addiction and recovery.
We’ll provide paint, markers, and collage materials, and we encourage participants to bring images and photographs to add to the mask.
While everyone is welcome, this activity is best suited for ages 14+.
