Healing Spaces is a series of hands-on art making workshops at the Boston Medical Center for people who are or have been cancer patients. In particular, we will be working with patients who are also immigrants and who may have additional barriers in expressing themselves through a healing journey. Together we will build 3 little houses that will, in addition to being works of art themselves, contain 2D and 3D art made by the patients over the course of 7 months. They will be exhibited in the lobbies of the Boston Medical Center, Dana Farber Cancer Center, and at the Urbano Project in Boston.
