Speak Your Peace – The Use of Music and Art for Healing
September 10, 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
September 10, 2022 from 1-3PM
ACA Harris House at 214 S. Riverside Drive, New Smyrna Beach, FL
About the Artist
Performing across the Southeast since 2006, Katie Martin’s unique blend of blues, folk, and soul mesmerizes audiences in a way that has to be seen to understand. Seeing Katie Martin perform is an experience like no other, and her refreshing individuality is one that leaves a lasting impression long after the stage has grown silent. Originally from Alabama, she’s spent the past decade in the Atlanta area, performing and running the Saturday Afternoon Jam at Darwin’s Burgers and Blues from 2012-2019. In 2015 she began recording with Grammy Award winning producer, Larry Mitchell and since then she has released two Live acoustic EPs and 2 full length albums, “Purpose” (2015) and ” Hope” (2018) all produced recorded and engineered by Mitchell in the Chocolate Room Studios. She is currently working on her third album with Mitchell, as well as a series of art pieces ( paintings/poetry/film/photography/drawings) that celebrate the beauty of nature as well as inviting the viewer to look within to find peace and growth in the midst of these turbulent times. Along with songwriting, she also is a Live Looping Artist, which means she composes songs with Loop Pedals for live performances. In the past few years she has performed in Live Looping and Songwriting festivals across the US and in Mexico. When she isn’t touring or playing festivals she’s working on new songs and artwork or you can find her playing music in hotel bars, wineries, music venues, and the occasional restaurants across the southeast. https://www.katiemartinmusic.com/
