Experience a sense of purpose, empowerment, healing and community through collaborative art.
Join us for an experiential art intensive weekend workshop in Atlanta.
In this workshop, you will be decorating 8-foot tall posts that will be publicly displayed at events and spaces across Georgia. If you have ever been to The Carter Center or the Atlanta Beltline project, you may have seen Posts for Peace and Justice from other organizations that have participated in this movement.
As a Fiona Project event, our intention is to create three or more posts to inspire conversation about Child Sexual Abuse awareness for prevention and healing purposes. Through education, we can prevent 95% of CSA from ever happening. So let’s paint some posts and instill those who view them with knowledge, empowered action and support.
Join us for this fun, family-friendly event. Together, we can create positive change through this unique and educational art adventure.
All materials are included. No experience required!
Ages 10+ welcome. *Children must be supervised at all times.

On SATURDAY morning, we will open our event with a short interactive discussion about Child Sexual Abuse awareness. During this time, you will share ideas and information around the topic to get your creativity flowing. *If there are children present, we will be sure to keep this part of the conversation kid-friendly.
By noon on Saturday, you will split into small groups where you can continue your conversations as you begin to create artwork for your posts.
Saturday afternoon, we will begin wrapping up around 4:30 and will hold a quick check-in to see what feelings and thoughts have come up over the course of the day.
On SUNDAY, you will be working on your posts artwork from arrival until about 4:30pm.
Sunday night, we will close with a short group circle to review your experience over the course of the weekend and how it has impacted you. A group photo will also be taken and emailed to participants as a keepsake.
Is there a minimum age requirement to participate?
Yes. Ages 10+ only, please. Families and youth groups are welcome and would be a great addition to our discussion and artwork. *Children must be supervised at all times.
Are pets allowed?
No. Pets are not allowed unless they are certified service dogs. Please do not bring your pet to the event and do not plan to leave your pet in the car. If the temperatures rise beyond a safe level and your pet is in the car, you will be asked to leave.
What should I wear?
Wear comfortable clothes and shoes that you don’t mind getting paint on.
Are there places to eat lunch nearby?
Generally, participants choose to bring a sack lunch, drinks and snacks, so that they can take a short break and get right back to their artwork. However, you are free to leave during lunch if you so choose.
What should I bring?
An artist’s apron would be helpful if you have one. Otherwise, wear paintable clothes. If you have a tablet or smart phone you would like to use for researching our topic or searching for images and design ideas, feel free to bring that as well.
