“Women in different stages of their cancer journey keep coming back to LA over and over for their creative nourishment. Some of the participants while involved with LA have their cancer journey take a dramatic turn towards end of life. Instead of dropping out or giving up they show up to LA and want to be creative and make art with the precious energy they have. The destination in front of them is uncertain, coming to LA however they know exactly what they will find. They find a loving nurturing, place that will hold them up to create whatever they want to. They will be met by the most amazing staff who knows their story and supports them totally in their need to have a safe, quiet place to just be their artist self.
In the time that is left for them they are sharing their remarkable journey and process with LA. Their gift of time that they give us helps to shine a light on the process of someone who will die from their cancer. This gift helps us to know how we can continue to hold up and support people affected by cancer creatively…with paper and glitter, shiny things, a hug, mostly with our respect for their creative life journey. Thank you for all the ways you hold Living Art up.” S.M-K., workshop participant
