Speak Your Peace – The Use of Music and Art for Healing
August 12, 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Join ACA and guest artist Katie Martin for an afternoon of music, poetry, and art. Katie will discuss the power of words and intention when using art and music for a source of healing and how to find a mixture of focused and free form expression to create an emotional release in a safe space. She’ll be creating musical soundscapes for participators to collaborate in.
It doesn’t matter if you’re an artist, writer, dancer, musician or just looking for a space to practice intentional self-healing, bring an open heart, and open mind, and the tools of your choice if you wish to be an active participator in the group collaborative healing session.
No experience necessary, and no RSVP required
Free and open to everyone
August 12, 2023 from 1-3PM
ACA Harris House at 214 S. Riverside Drive, New Smyrna Beach, FL
About the Artist
Katie Martin is a multimedia artist and songwriter based out of Alabama, with a unique blend of blues, folk, and soul that is immediately compelling. She began working with Grammy Award winning producer Larry Mitchell in 2012, and has since released three albums with him: “Purpose” (2015), “Hope” (2018), and “Faith” (2022). Mixing hand drawings, photography, videography and prose, each album is paired with a collection of artwork in both the digital and physical realms so that the listener can experience the albums on multiple levels. Martin is also a Live Looping Artist, which means she composes songs with loop pedals for live performances. She has performed in Live Looping and Songwriting festivals across the United States and Mexico. Additionally, as an artist whose work emphasizes introspection and growth, Katie’s songs have also been featured on the “Women of Substance: Music with a Conscious” podcast. In 2023, Martin became a certified sound healer with a focus on the use of Crystal Singing Bowls. She is continuing her education on various instruments, techniques and healing practices to incorporate into her work.
