Making Matters

Making Matters because… when we make art, we make culture, and our culture can be one of violence and oppression, or we can make it one of support and respect…when we make art, we reflect ourselves in the materials, giving us an opportunity to know, love, and heal ourselves more deeply…when we make art, we make ourselves.

Making Matters is a space for self-guided art making among individuals affected by sexual violence.

Open to survivors, their loved ones, trauma workers/volunteers, allies, and everyone in between. Making Matters welcomes self-exploration, healing, solidarity, community building, and self-care through art making, while empowering participants to be in control of their own creative process.

No prior artistic experience required! Basic art materials will be provided, but you can bring your own materials or projects in progress. Participants can feel free to come and go as they please. Light refreshments will be served.

For more information, please contact Jordan Ferranto, MAAT, LPC at (872) 356-8213 or

Note: Making Matters will be going on hiatus after June 19, 2018.
