Our Mission

Under the umbrella of the 501(c)3 not-for-profit Center for the Living Arts, Healing the Wounds of History develops and implements innovative approaches to transforming and healing historical trauma in the individual, family and the collective through the use of drama and the expressive arts.

“We are healing the wounds of history through transformative theatre.”
