AWI Sanctuary Space presents: Exploring Generational Trauma in Animated Movies
An ongoing Continued Connections program that creates virtual spaces where people can connect at the intersection of art and mental health.
“Exploring Generational Trauma in Animated Movies” is a special Sanctuary Space: Mental Health in the Media event that was hosted by Art With Impact on June 15, 2022. We were joined by mental health advocates Amy Wong, Cessa Betancourt, and Cat Tanchanco to watch Disney movie clips depicting generational trauma, share experiences, swap mental wellness tips, and co-create a more aware future for healing.
This event was free to attend.
