About the Event
Based on experience as a patient with a mental health condition, the Socratic maieutic (helping a person to bring forth and become aware of latent ideas) and the concept of Kintsugi (repairing with gold), Fermina Ponce will conduct this expressive writing workshop. In this workshop she will talk about stigma, taboo, or what is difficult for people to talk about in relation to mental health conditions. The workshop helps participants, through literature such as poetry, to create cathartic texts that connect to their need to be heard.
