Resemblance:
This art collaboration seeks to find the common threads between individuals receiving support from Rahab’s Sisters and Baby Blues Connection.

Artwork will be completed, in two hour sessions, over four months starting in July and facilitated by BBC volunteer Amy Galaviz with Belle Ame Therapy. This project is not art therapy, but an opportunity to process your experience through art.

Using a set of descriptive words, participants work on an open-for-interpretation pieces for two sessions. Organizations then swap artwork and using another set of descriptive words, participants finish work started by the opposite organization.

The goal is to reduce stigma around mental health through the public showing of this collaborative art project. Artists will be identified by first name only, or remain anonymous.

The finished pieces will be shown November and December as part of our Give!Guide campaign.

Here is the link to sign up.

Tell Your Tale:
This event will be facilitated by a trained, qualified workshop guide provided Write Around Portland.

The workshop will run for 8 or 10 weeks, two hours each session.

Journals, pens, handouts and light snacks are provided.

Write Around Portland seeks to eliminate all barriers to participation. A variety of questions about accommodations are included in this survey.

At the end of the workshop, a copy of the professionally-designed published book featuring contributions from all second cycled workshop participants with Write Around Portland will be given to you for free. Additional copies can be purchased for a small fee.

A public reading of pieces will be held at TaborSpace in SE PDX on Thursday, December 12th at 630 pm. You do not have to read your piece, if you do not want to but you are encouraged to attend.

The cost to participate is $40 but no one is turned away. Please email with questions.
