Award-winning author Jonetta Rose Barras joins with Esther Productions, Inc., a DC-based nonprofit organization, and nationally recognized artists and therapists Brittany Nicole Adams, Joy Jones and Tracie Robinson to present THE GIFT: An Interactive Arts Healing and Reconciliation Experience being held October 20, 2015 from 5:30 PM through 8:00 PM at the Frank Reeves Municipal Center—2nd Floor, 14th and U Sts. NW.
THE GIFT: An Interactive Arts Healing and Reconciliation Experience has been designed for anyone, ages 18 and older, who has suffered a traumatic loss–the death of a child, break up of a valued relationship, or father abandonment—and has had a difficult time trying to recover or stabilize their life. It uses literature, dance and visual arts to establish a safe and supportive environment for participants to identify the material and emotional impact of their loss. Further, they are aided in the development of a plan to significantly address previously unexpressed grief and anger.
