“Writing with PTSD and Art Therapy” on January 16, 2018

Due to inclement weather, we are postponing tonight’s seminar. Stay tuned for a reschedule!

The Arts & Culture Alliance is pleased to present a professional development seminar for artists and other creative people on Tuesday, January 16, from 5:30-6:30 PM at the Emporium Center in downtown Knoxville. Join us as we welcome Jeb A. Herrin!

We often think of PTSD as a single defining characteristic, but it’s important to remember that PTSD is a smaller piece of a much larger whole. During this seminar, we’ll be looking at PTSD through art therapy, as well as learning how to accurately express characters who have PTSD. Artists working in any genre are invited to attend!

Please confirm your spot in the workshop via credit card payment here. The presentation fees are:

  • $5 for members of the Arts & Culture Alliance
  • $8 for non-members
  • $63 for a new membership + workshop
