"McGill students lead initiative to heal trauma through art," The McGill Tribune (April 17, 2018)

Held on March 22 in buildings across the Downtown campus, from library classrooms to publicly-accessible booths in the Arts building foyer, Growth on the Horizon was composed of workshops and themed discussions through which students were reminded of the pervasiveness of sexual assault and the ways in which survivors can begin to outsource their pain through artistic creation.

“We envisioned healing as a multifaceted experience which can include healing at the personal, interpersonal, community, and institutional levels—healing among students, healing between educational administrations and the students, and the healing of institutional processes and systems,” Jones and Misenheimer wrote in an email to The McGill Tribune.
