Art and Healing: Lilly E. Manycolors (webinar)
MONDAY, NOVEMBER 9: 6:30 P.M. TO 8:00 P.M. RSVP required.
Join Lilly E. Manycolors, a Choctaw interdisciplinary artist known for her emotionally-excavating artworks and performances for a dynamic artist talk. Deeply rooted in her Choctaw traditions and the Anishinaabe teachings given to her, she draws from her personal journeys to create pieces that offer safer spaces for decolonial dialogue, intimate connections, and new ways of being. Her art focuses on the human condition, bringing into conversation experiences of otherness, transformation, trauma and healing, gender, and possibilities of being one’s complex self.
This talk will explore how engagement with the creative process can improve personal health and wellness, but also how art can have healing powers on a much larger societal scale.
