12:00AM 12:00AM Healing through Art: Sharing Our Grief, Loss, and Changes in COVID-19: School: Oxford CollegeDepartment / Organization: Oxford CollegeContact Name: Lyn PaceContact Phone: 770.784.8392Contact Email: ppace@emory.eduThis event, sponsored by the Oxford and Emory Offices of Spiritual and Religious Life, starts September 14.The past months have been a traumatic time for individuals, communities, and our world. The illness, deaths, and life changes brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic alongside continued anti-Black violence and serious immigration concerns have undoubtedly taken a toll on our Emory community. The grief compounded with continued social distancing measures have made it difficult to acknowledge, name, and share these hardships. We hope to facilitate a virtual space to help us connect and share our grief. We hope this platform can remind our community members that they are not alone.With Healing Through Art, we invite the Emory community to individually and collectively express and process their experiences of grief and loss.Starting September 14, you are invited to share a representation of the grief and loss you are experiencing as this academic year begins. You can choose to express this through any medium you wish, whether it be visual, auditory, or written. We will compile all submissions to share as a virtual gallery on a common Instagram account  (@emory_hta). You may also choose to share your depiction privately in other places, whether it be in your home, your workplace, or online.Learn more about submitting your art. + Virtual Campus Events
