“Twistshops” are art therapy focused workshops that promote healing, relaxation and emotional recovery through art therapy based interventions that are designed to reduce symptoms of depression, anxiety and stress related to cancer.


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.

Starting in 2020, Twist Out Cancer will be expanding our Twistshop programming to include Chicago, Philadelphia, Austin and beyond. The programs are designed to be intimate gatherings with no more than 20 participants per session that 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.
