Resilience: Beyond Survival - Write What You Know

We survive trauma and disaster when we have no choice. We keep on breathing; we do what must be done, but something vital is missing. Resilience goes beyond survival. Resilience is finding meaning out of tragedy, finding strength to create a new life, re-discovering joy, encouraging others. Resilience is the determination to overcome what has happened and move on, perhaps stronger and better. Some of us have been impacted by Covid virus. We have seen many stories or experienced the process of digging down to discover the gift of resilience. How did you to get past the impact of covid on your life? Whether it is the virus or some other event, this three session writing workshop is your opportunity to honor that journey. What happened, how did you survive? How do you recognize the role of resilience in your life, what gifts resulted from that experience? No prior writing experience is necessary.

Facilitator Miki Conn is an artist, storyteller, poet, author and community organizer. Her African and Native American roots inspired her interest in indigenous arts and multiculturalism. Miki is the former executive director of the Hamilton Hill Arts Center, a multi-arts center located in the heart of the inner-city in Schenectady.
