ABOUT THE FACILITATORS:
Elliot Maxwell (Drama Therapist, Filmmaker) and Bevan Klassen (Art Therapist, Filmmaker) met at an Armand Volkas autobiographical therapeutic performance workshop. Inspired by that experience, they have created a therapy process using video making as personal expression.
Bevan Klassen is an art therapist (DWHEAT) and works with individuals and groups to make videos as therapy. He has brought video making as therapy to a Winnipeg temporary youth shelter, CancerCare Manitoba, an art therapy clinic, and his own private practice. Bevan came to Art Therapy through the joy and healing he found as a filmmaker and his desire to support others on their journey using this unique therapeutic approach.
Elliot Maxwell is a drama therapist, Reiki practitioner, and creative. Elliot received his Masters in Drama Therapy at Concordia, and then went to work at Aulneau Renewal Centre. Elliot has always found film and theatre healing, and loves the spiritual transformation that can take place in creative spaces. Drama therapy can allow one to play with rigid defences, experience catharsis and deepen self awareness and self compassion. Elliot can’t wait to be a witness and guide to your healing journey in this transcendent experience.
