* the things we made together *
During the summer of 2021, we celebrated the life of Preston Thompson who passed suddenly in January 2021. A small group of us met regularly and explored grief and loss through movement, text, and drawing. A compilation video of Preston's work within GBC led us to our theme of embracing the things we had made together. After several months of meeting and creating, we shared our work with Preston's family and GBC humans. Below you will find an edited recording of our final celebration, the three primary creative prompts we followed, and a compilation of Preston's work. You are welcomed to create along with us in the video or explore the prompts on your own time. We hope you find these prompts helpful in processing any grief or loss you've experienced. If you feel the need to speak with a mental health professional, you can contact La Frontera or any of the mental health hotlines posted below. Thank you for taking the time to be here. Take care of yourselves and each other.
Thank you to those who have made donations to GBC in Preston's name. All funds donated in Preston's name will be used to support the development of our non-profit branch.
