We debuted our Community Literary Therapy Wall in the Healing Village at the 2022 Black Joy Parade in Downtown Oakland, California so people could write about joy.
Over 800 people in over 20 countries have experienced our Literary Therapy Writing Program.
We brought postcards, pens, Black Joy Parade Edition Literary Therapy Exploration Workbooks, fried chicken stickers, and wellness resources by 1Degree.
Then we took our Community Literary Therapy Wall on the road. To date, it has lived in two branches of the Oakland Public Library.
Where will our wall go next?
1427 88th Ave, Oakland, CA
Visit the Community Literary Therapy Wall until the end of June 2022 to grab a Black Joy Parade Edition Literary Therapy Workbook and let us know what you’re doing to getsomejoy.
BRING SOME JOY TO YOUR MEETINGS + EVENTS
What does joy mean to your coworkers? Hosted by Miro, our Virtual Literary Therapy Wall will help you foster connnection and prioritize mental health at work.
We invited the community to reflect and share:
What are you doing to getsomejoy?
What does joy mean to you? How does it look, feel, sound, taste?
What meal or dish represents joy to you? Why?
WHAT HAD HAPPENED WAS…
7,860 miles. 300 workbooks. 101 ways to get some joy.
Our wall spent March + April 2022 at Oakland’s Lakeview Branch.
LET’S KEEP THE PARTY GOING
Your generous support will helps us transport + expand the wall, print postcards + workbooks, and build more Community Literary Therapy Walls in more cities.
