Event Details

A Shelter for All of Me is a children's workshop that uses different approaches to help children explore their own bodies, which serve as lifelong shelters. Our body constantly communicates with us through messages like "Look out! This person is hurting you" or "I like this place because I feel safe here." By attentively listening to these messages, children can deepen their relationship with their bodies.
Through storytelling, games, art-making, and movement, children will learn how their body protects them, even when they feel uncomfortable and uneasy with what their bodies are telling them. The workshop will help them understand and trust their body’s wisdom, especially when dealing with feelings of fear and anxiety. Participants will also practise important skills like setting boundaries and understanding consent, empowering them with the tools to take action to keep themselves safe.

Ivy is a co-founder of ARTFOLD, a safe creative space that offers art therapy, therapeutic art activities and workshops for individuals, corporate and social service organisations. As an accredited psychotherapist and social worker, she has journeyed with children and families, processing complex traumatic events and making sense of their world through the awe-inspiring healing powers of art-making. SOMAYOKE 
Yoke Wen has journeyed with vulnerable children, adults, and families over the past decade as a trauma-informed facilitator, trainer, and writer. She founded SOMAYOKE in 2019 to facilitate safe spaces for trauma healing for children, teens, adults, and communities. SOMAYOKE offers therapeutic services, trauma training, and consultation using body-based perspectives and tools to explore safety and healing in mind, body, and breath. Connecting with children has always brought tremendous joy and she enjoys doing this using their language—fun and play!
