The Arts & Social Justice 

At Disastershock, we believe the arts should be accessible to all, irrespective of their race, class, ability, ethnicity, sexual/gender orientation or socioeconomic status. We are committed to ensuring our materials are inclusive and promote the representation and participation of all different types of groups and individuals.

Cultural Appropriation, Cultural Humility & Expressive Arts Therapy by Cathy Malchiodi:

In light of the amount of suffering currently happening in our world, Disastershock stands in solidarity with and for our fellow human beings and recognizes that each and every person who finds themself in pain deserves tools and resources to help see them through it.


We champion the gifts of creativity and the expressive arts as healing, universal forces that promote connection and positive change. Through the arts, we can express and process our deepest pain and find a way through our grief.

and Andrea Gitter, MA, LCAT, BC-DMT. 

"The expressive arts offer room to breathe, express, and explore our grief with aesthetic distance, which can forge a path of possibilities unseen."

-Dr. Reji Mathew
