Common Ground

An Arts-Based Support Group for Those Living with or Recovering from Cancer or Other Life-Challenging Illnesses

“… a unique way to express our thoughts, feelings, and insights with others with similar challenges.” — previous participant

Are you suffering from cancer or the after-effects of treatment?

Have you been diagnosed with a life-threatening illness?

Would you like to share with others who are on, or who have been on, a similar journey?

Using the tools and creative expression of Art Therapy we will share our stories, weaving our experiences together using symbol and image, while playfully exploring with paint, clay, and collage.

Professionally facilitated. No art experience required.
