Hello everyone! I'm Winnie, an art therapy graduate student based in Chicago. My close relatives are living with Alzheimer. I have launched a free-for-all community art project, called ‘Drawn To Strangers’, for people living with memory loss and those supporting them.

It encourages people to draw a personal story from their memory and encourage the dialogue exchange with strangers, or their families and friends, to promote emotional connection with who they are today. Since the pandemic hit, I have moved it online to Facebook: to support people who may feel distant from one another.

If you think any of your friends or family members might be able to benefit from this sharing experience, please share with them. I want to support people during this difficult time of isolation as much as possible.
