Hello Friends at VIUF,
Hope this note finds you well. I am writing to share that Lelavision (Leah Mann) has been invited to do an art residency for youth relocated to Istanbul due to the earthquakes in southern Turkey.
We will be facilitating playshops, musical instrument making from recyclables, and trauma informed somatics with school age youth, March 27 – April 7.
