Truth Be Told was honored to be the featured charity for the October edition of Story Bar’s Inward & Artward, a monthly workshop series that explores the intersection of the arts, mindfulness and community.
Truth Be Told Executive Director Katie Ford and TBT volunteer facilitator Jardine Libaire teamed up with Story Bar founders Adam Sultan and Erin Hallagan to create a two-hour experience, which attracted about 25 people and raised $220 for Truth Be Told.
Adam began the morning with a guided meditation, and then Jardine and Katie led the participants through an expressive writing exercise that is part of the Talk to Me program they co-facilitate at Lockhart Women’s Correctional Facility. Inward & Artward guests also had the chance to browse original artwork and writings created by past Talk to Me graduates and learn about Truth Be Told’s mission, vision and values.
A special thank-you to Truth Be Told co-founder Carol Waid for taking time out of her Sunday morning to participate in the workshop and to longtime volunteer Linda Valencia for documenting the morning in pictures. It was a lovely experience for all!
