TwistShops welcome individuals who have been touched by cancer to engage in art therapy based workshops that focus on utilizing the arts as a mechanism for healing.+ Read More
Survivors, caregivers and previvors are invited to participate. Participants will be guided by a licensed art therapist through a variety of art-making activities that will allow participants to process their past and current experiences as a patient, caregiver or supporter of someone with cancer. Through storytelling and mindful art-making, the intention is to help participants explore different emotions, and in turn revive self, heal and find ways to move forward.
Starting in 2019, Twist Out Cancer offered 5 TwistShops for which will be limited to no more than 20 participants per session and lasted 2-3 hours in total. The intention is to limit the size and scope of the workshop with the intention of creating intimacy and a sense of community.
Twist Out Cancer is excited to announce the launch of our Twistshop Facilitator Training program. If you are a psychologist, social worker, art therapist, dance therapist, music therapist or counselor that is interested in learning the Twistshop curriculum and leading art therapy focused workshops, we encourage you to learn more and apply! The deadline to apply is February 1st. The facilitator training will take place in March and will be led by Jacqueline Carmody, LCPC, ATR, BC and Twist Out Cancer Board Member.
