Have you ever wondered what a map of yourself would look like? Body mapping is an arts-based way for people to tell their stories. In our session, we will be creating life-sized body maps for people to explore fatness through representing themselves, their bodies, and the world they live in. Body maps mean different things to different people and can be used for therapy, advocacy, team-building, dialogue, and biography. Participants will walk away with a piece of personal art and insight into the practice of body mapping.
