WISE & Healthy Aging, in collaboration with A Window Between Worlds, is hosting a free art workshop entitled “Pearls of Wisdom: End the Violence” on Tuesday, Aug. 25, 10 – 11 a.m., at 1527 4th Street, Santa Monica. Individuals throughout the community who have experienced domestic violence later in life are invited to participate. No artistic experience is necessary.
Using art as a healing tool, workshop participants will take time to notice what “pearl of wisdom” they would like to share to create awareness about domestic violence later in life. Sharing stories and experiences as survivors, from pain to wisdom, can empower and inspire others to help end the violence.
Artwork created at the workshop will be on display in the Los Angeles City Hall Rotunda during Domestic Violence Awareness Month in October. Mayor Garcetti and other city officials we be participating in this project.
This October marks the first year the City of Los Angeles Domestic Violence Task Force has focused on domestic violence later in life, bringing awareness to the complex issues that arise when elder adults are subject to abuse.
