These Expressive Arts Therapy sessions are provided through Hospice Toronto with a focus on the experiences of gay Asian men. This group takes place in a safe and meaningful environment where warmth, trust, and non-judgment abounds. Topics may include coming out, body image, sexual racism, family, dating, etc.

The purpose of this group is to provide gay Asian men with a safe place where they can express themselves through a variety of art modalities, share their stories, express their grief, and explore their feelings in a non-threatening way by:

  • Remembering the past
  • Redefining the present
  • Re-creating the future

Our goals for expressive arts are to:

  • Enable the expression of fear, anger, anxiety, and sadness through the arts
  • Encourage the expression of deep inner feelings and thoughts
  • Discover and tell the untold stories
  • Provide an opening for both present and unresolved losses
  • Find ways to say goodbye, speak unspoken words
  • Provide opportunities for sharing memories and experiences of loss
  • Provide support in a non-judgmental environment
