Body Mapping for Diabetes is an arts-based group that takes place once a week over the course of six weeks. This group is only open to adults with a diagnosis of diabetes (ex. Type 1, LADA, MODY, Type 2). Participants will be using a life-sized sketch of themselves to map out their own narrative of diabetes. These stories will provide the basis for conversations around some of the challenges of living with diabetes. No background in drawing or art is required.
The body mapping technique was first developed by artist Jane Solomon, in her work with women living with HIV/AIDS in South Africa.
