Art workshop – Living well with cancer

Aratika Cancer Trust have kindly collaborated with CanTeen to organise two art workshops for our young people. The attendees were encouraged to bring a book or journal and use stencils and words to create a visual journal exploring their own experiences with cancer.

At the end, the group had a discussion where they each explained their creative process and why certain symbols/words were used and were encouraged to have an open discussion about shared experiences.

The feedback we received from the young people who attended the event focused on the amount of creativity they were able to express whilst also being able to share stories and experiences in a completely different way.
