ART CONNECTS #3 Poetry Box [8 May 2020]

An expressive arts workshop focused on making customized poetry boxes.

The third online workshop from a new series called art CONNECTS will be focused on making a poetry box, which can be a fantastic resource for both self-discovery and therapeutic/facilitation work.

In this workshop, we will relax into an easy step-by-step process of creating a poetry box, hunt for the first set of words, and write playful accidental poetry using the words we collected.

This online expressive arts workshop is for everyone, who would like to explore simple resources for facilitation and/or find new ways of playing with creative writing.

Have you ever felt like the more time you spend online, the more lonely and disconnected you become? Technology has changed our lifestyle massively in many ways. While we can connect easily with friends far away, somehow we lose the depth of being with each other here and now. Online interaction can feel shallow and unreal. Sometimes, it lacks meaning and leaves us with the uncomfortable feeling of emptiness.

We believe that online connection can be used efficiently and with awareness to establish meaningful relationships with people around the world.

Let’s reconnect with ourselves and others through a real experience of art-making!In this international online meetup, participants will connect through Skype and make art together with the support of two expressive arts facilitators. We will enjoy the flow of creativity and imagination using different art forms.

The ability to make art is what we all share and what brings us back to ourselves. Art can help us to express and communicate, to listen, to appreciate little things, and to be together!


replace technological isolation with a true connection

relax into art-making

practice how to let go of judgement

receive the gift of true attention from yourself and others

We will use basic art materials that everyone has at home to make art and play together!

See you online,
