 Memory War Theater invites you to participate in a half day of story sharing and  exploration around traumatic birth on Saturday December 3rd from 1:00PM-5:00PM. We are  inviting a small group of women who have  experienced a traumatic birth to attend this  half-day workshop. Theater artist Tikka Sears  facilitates the workshop with support from  psychologist, Leslie Butterfield.

The workshop will invite storytelling and exploration of our birth stories using drama  therapy, interactive theater, art and storytelling. Our goal is to create a space where  individuals who have experienced traumatic birth can share stories and process their own  stories in a healing and creative environment.

This project is part of a larger theater project that explores traumatic birth and there is an opportunity to work with this project in multiple ways. This story telling workshop is the first in a series of events to create spaces where we can communally share our stories.

To Register:

This workshop is FREE and supported by a grant from the Mayor’s Office of Arts and Cultural Affairs. This is the second workshop in a series. Please register online for the workshop and answer a few questions about your experience and why you would like to participate. Please register only if you are certain that you can attend as space is very limited. Workshop location and more logistics will be sent after people register. **The deadline to register is Tuesday November 29 2016.

Sponsored by: Memory War Theater with support from the Mayors Office of Arts and Cultural Affairs.
