This month, Eastern Virginia Medical School’s department of Art Therapy and Counseling will host an art-based workshop addressing the history of race and racial disparity in Hampton Roads. This daylong workshop includes a panel discussion featuring local historians, followed by community art making led by a local art therapist. Together, participants will form a creative response to history, examining present day needs and exploring future transformation.

This in-person event will take place at the Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art. Lunch and art materials will be provided. Ages 14 and up are welcome, but minors need a parent or guardian’s signed permission. Face masks are required.

For more information or to register contact artthrpy@evms.edu.

This program was made possible in part by a grant from Virginia Humanities.

Our work brings people together and honors our shared humanity.
