Kathryn Pannepacker (ACG '16, 15, LTA '11, WOO '04) has been asked to present a weaving workshop and presentation at the 2018 National Organization for Arts in Health (NOAH) Conference in Austin, TX from October 8-10th. The theme of this year’s conference is "Reimagining the Future of Arts in Health".
She will model a 'sanctuary studio'/weaving workshop from her current work with people in active addiction in the Kensington section of Philadelphia. Kathryn aims to demonstrate how creating a " 'sanctuary studio' in the arts in health care brings a critically vital ingredient of 'belonging, meaning and purpose' to individuals and communities impacted from core trauma leading to substance abuse and other disorders". Being at this conference to present as well as to attend other workshops will enable her to learn and make other professional art for social change connections.
