Open Source: SWOON
In an effort to help those struggling with substance abuse, SWOON worked with Mural Arts’ Restorative Justice program to develop an understanding of the conditions and context of trauma that lead to and perpetuate lifelong addiction. In collaboration with Jessica Radovich, a mental health counselor and yoga instructor, SWOON developed a series of classes that help address trauma as it relates to addiction and loss. The classes took place in Graterford SCI, Interim House, and with the Mural Arts’ Guild program. From this experience, she is developing a series of portraits that will appear in a public space.
