We are excited to announce Mo Thunder (they/them), a talented non-binary, neuroemergent, Onyota’a:ka x french-canadian art-maker and visual storyteller, as our special guest for Taking Care this week! During this virtual session, Mo will share their process on how creating a visual art journal has been an imperative part to their healing and learning. Mo has extensive experience using the art journal, and continues to hold workshops to share this gift with others. They are currently working on a visual art journal with/for Indigenous folks, scheduled to be released in 2022. Join us as we listen and learn from this incredible visual storyteller, and see how we can use this skill to integrate in our own lives!
