Our VOICE believes in the healing power of art and is thrilled to be located in a community with so many incredible artists. We welcome interested individuals that would like to share their gifts of art with Our VOICE through our Client Workshop program. There are three components to this program – Facilitator Training, Workshop Proposal, and Memorandum of Understanding.
Beginning in 2014, Our VOICE will hold a training for those who would like to facilitate art and art-related workshops. This training will be offered in the winter and summer. There is a $20 registration fee for the 90 minute training which is held at the Our VOICE offices. Participation in the Facilitator Training is required to run a client workshop through Our VOICE.
The training will cover:
- Client Confidentiality
- Basics of Trauma
- Informed Consent
- Creating a Safe Space
- Managing Group Dynamics
- Working with Triggered Individuals
- Keeping a Service Log/Participant Notes
Interested facilitators can submit a Workshop Proposal with information about their art class. Participation in the Facilitator Training is a not a guarantee of proposal acceptance.
Memorandum of Understanding
Once the Facilitator Training has been completed and the Workshop Proposal has been accepted, an individual must sign the Memorandum of Understanding in regards to each parties responsibilities in holding a successful Client Workshop.
We look forward to your submissions and to answering any questions you may have about this process. Thank you for your interest in working with individuals affected by sexual violence through the powerful medium of art.
