EXPRESSIVE ARTS PROGRAM AND RUNWAY SHOW*
Here are highlights of the Oakland Runway Show. Preparing for the Show begins during the Expressive Arts Program, where the models participated in a 7-week process that included dance-movement, music, dramatic self-expression and the visual arts. The combination of these modalities is called the Expressive Arts. The models decided on three themes to explore together – individually and as a group. The themes became a scene in the show. Before each scene, each model explains their expressive arts projects and the insights they’ve gained during the process. The models also spent time exploring their personal wardrobes and selected outfits that best supported how they felt about each theme.
As you watch and listen, please understand the work undertaken by the models is something to be celebrated. They demonstrate tremendous courage and determination in overcoming obstacles that we all tend to suppress. We grapple with our inner self-talk that so often prevents us from expressing ourselves, authentically. The models transformed their trauma of facing a life-threatening illness by rising above their inner critics and working together to create this Runway Show. Please watch and honor their journeys by receiving their expressions into your hearts, fully and completely.
Our Campaign raises funds to bring the Runway experience to more women healing from cancer in 2022.
