What You Need for Love Artwork  


Indigenous women, in five communities across Ontario, were guided by an expressive arts therapist. Because Indigenous women come from a variety of nations and cultural backgrounds, the diversity and particulars of each location meant that each community had to define which art form was relevant to spend time on. Women illustrated their life with pivotal moments, both positive and negative, in order to tell their life story. Upon completion of each painting and sharing the women felt strong and empowered. Above is a gallery of some of the artwork from the Breaking Free, Breaking Through Project.
