Join us for a special Women’s Circle, where we’ll practice the art of mindfulness while learning the art of Bookbinding.

Led by Abujahna Donna Alveranga, Artist and Art therapist in training. Her oeuvre, encompassing prints, works on paper, and artists’ books are published under Redlamp Studios. She has exhibited in museums and galleries both nationally and internationally. As an art therapist in training, she has worked with survivors of trauma, such as in Haiti in the aftermath of 2010 earthquake. Her more recent work engages survivors of sexual trauma.

Abujahna is the creator of the TTC project: Things They Carried, which speaks to trauma and resilience, and had its premiere in July 2016 at the historic Casa De Africa museum in Cuba. “I Choose Me”, the seminal piece from the TTC exhibition, was selected to their permanent collection on view at the Museum. She is also the founder of TWC arts for healing & It Begins With U, a home and body care line.

This class is an introductory workshop to a ten-week workshop series exploring and incorporating mindfulness techniques and the Art of bookbinding.

CONNECT’s monthly Women’s Circle is a free and open discussion forum for empowerment, support, healing, and liberation.
