CPW is working with documentary artist Brenda Ann Kenneally in bringing her trauma-informed scrapbooking workshop to Kingston. She has taken this workshop into various at-risk communities throughout NY, using the tools of personal storytelling to heal, empower, and inspire kids, teens, and young adults as they work together to process complex feelings and life experiences. The goal of the workshop is for each student to come away with new tools for self expression, and a book about their lives from their own perspectives. The class will culminate in a showcase of student work at CPW for their friends, family, and faculty to see.
