The Road Home: New Perspectives on Addiction, Wholeness, and Healing with Swoon and Dr. Gabor Maté
October 29 | 8:00am–12:30pm
International House Philadelphia
3701 Chestnut Street
Join us to participate in thoughtful conversations about compassion-centered and trauma-informed practices in art and healing. The culmination of Mural Arts Philadelphia’s work with artist Swoon (Caledonia Curry) in Kensington, this symposium features renowned speaker and author Dr. Gabor Maté, as well as a wide array of experts in the field of trauma and addiction.
In collaboration with therapist and artist Jessica Radovich and storytellers Heather Box and Julian Mocine-McQueen, Swoon offered near-daily open-door workshops at the Porch Light Kensington Storefront in April and May. Weekly harm-reduction workshops connected participants to further resources at the nearby Prevention Point facility, across the street from a shelter where a new mural and outdoor lighting and seating will renew this public space for all.
