THERAPEUTIC PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOPS

The biggest part of our activity is the workshops of Experiential Therapeutic Photography that we offer for free to individuals who have experienced cancer.

  • They are specially designed seminars of self-expression through photography and imaginative activities that help us face our challenges with a more positive outlook.
  • Our goal is the improvement of our emotional welfare and quality of life.
  • The workshops are open to adults, who either in the past or the present, have faced any type of cancer.
  • Separate groups are provided, specifically for the empowerment of women with breast cancer or other types of gynaecological cancer, for individuals in the first years of their diagnosis, as well as for patients’ relatives.
