2012-2015 - Philadelphia, PA

ReACH (Redemptive Arts for Community Health) was series of therapeutic creative workshops that were funded by Philadelphia’s Department of Behavioral Health and disAbility Services. The series was created as a collaboration of four community organizations servicing the north Philadelphia: Ayuda Community Center, Esperanza Health Center, One Hope Community Church, and Casa de ConseJeria. As the Community Arts Director of Ayuda, I worked with the counsellors at Casa to develop the creative workshops which explored behavioral health topics chosen by community members using artistic mediums. I both taught and gathered others to teach a variety of mediums. In 2015, I taught a printmaking workshop exploring the topic of addiction.
