Expressive Arts Support
Heather is thrilled to enter her second year with Some Assembly Theatre Company! She is a certified Expressive Arts Therapist, an award-winning television director and writer. Heather uses play and imagination to delve into inner worlds where core selves are discovered and given their chance to speak. Poetry, visual arts, movement, puppetry, video creating, creative writing and mask making are just a few of the tools she uses to facilitate the ascent into self-discovery. Recently she has delighted bringing this healing work to refugee children, school age children and their teachers in the Surrey school district. Currently, Heather works as a Primary Expressive Arts Therapist and Group Facilitator at The Chopra Addiction and Wellness Center. She also facilitates Zoom mask making workshops at Wellspring Calgary – a center for people and their families living with cancer. For Heather, in that moment when personal creation reveals to the individual and/or the group that wisdom and insight exists within and is accessible any time, empowerment and hope take hold and healing begins!
