Bushfire survivors gather for art therapy workshop

Wondering what Art Therapy looks like?
Watch this video to see how a community affected by bushfire came together to share and honour their stories. Here, you'll see the making of Eurobodalla's Tree. Each leaf, an individual. The tree, a whole community. More than 150 fire affected locals gathered at the Malua Bay Surf Club on the NSW Far South Coast to engage in an art therapy workshop. The turnout was much bigger than expected and organisers say that shows fire survivors are more than ready for community lead mental health and recovery projects. The group artwork was created on the beach where the community fled to during the New Year’s Eve fires and has been presented back to the surf club where it will hang as a memorial to those who have lost lives and property during the fires. The workshop was led by Professional ANZACATA member Clemency Doyle. (ABC).
