“Grief Mapping: Land, Body, and Sound” is a participatory workshop that supports healing from loss through visual art and somatic practices. Drawn from creative research for the NPN-supported project Requiem for a Stranger and co-facilitated by raconteur Alaina Comeaux, Vagabond Inventions Director Jennifer Sargent, and singer/performer Renee Benson, the workshop offers ways to understand time and grieving through an anti-colonial lens. Participants will create expressive “maps” connecting personal stories of loss through collage and drawing, breath and voice, and in movement stored in the body. The workshop will have suggested reading and offer time for sharing and reflection.
