Diverse Artspace:
A Diversity Accepting Youth Art Group

Groups for other needs may be created in future, let us know your differing need!

Details: An open studio Art Therapy group for youth aged roughly between 17-28 who identify as being neurodivergent or diverse in some way.

A neurodivergent, gender diversity and diversity accepting and affirming space.

For youth who enjoy art making or crafts. A friendly small group to focus on self-directed art making.

Those who are quiet or feel shy are welcome to come and quietly make art without feeling pressured to talk.

About Therapist: Alana Stewart is a Registered Art Therapist, Counsellor and Artist.

Alana is from a neurodivergent family with close members on the autism spectrum. She has a good understanding of the needs of people who are neurodivergent from her lived experience and wealth of professional experience in disability services, coming close to 10 years. Alana works with many youth who are neurodivergent (ASD, ADHD, ID and other), LGBTQI+, including those who are non-binary and use they/them pronouns.

Goals: Art Therapy supports emotional regulation skills and improving mental health.

Art making in a supportive group environment helps to grow confidence in self-expression and self-esteem. This group is also to support positive identity around being neurodivergent and having lived experience of diversity.
