About

SHATTERED GLASS is a multimedia stage presentation and workshop facilitated by author, Shaunelle Curry and singer/songwriter/recording artist Kelley Nicole. SHATTERED GLASS addresses sexism, misogyny, domestic violence and rape through spoken word, dramatization, live music and art. 
 
Taking its participants on a journey from experiencing a unique multi-media stage presentation consisting of live poetry, music, and visual art, to reacting and discussing its impact, to then creating and presenting their own works of art as therapeutic tools, this workshop helps build and develop core social-emotional competencies that ultimately lead to improved self-image and productive action.  SHATTERED GLASS engages the use of art as an instrument for successfully overcoming oppression and finding strength, healing, and empowerment in life.

At the end of each workshop, participants should have the following takeaways:

  • Increased critical thinking capacity
  • Increased knowledge-base on women's self-esteem and wellness
  • Tools, strategies and resources for setting goals and taking personal responsibility for one's life direction and emotions
  • A feeling of compassion for oneself and others and a more crystalized sense of positive identity
  • The beginning of a personal treatment plan, including a list of goals with strategies for acomplishing them
  • A specific strategy, with resources, for countering counterproductive beliefs and replacing them with productive beliefs that support personal success
  • A personal commitment statement
  • A personally autographed copy of Shairi's Journey
  • A personally autographed copy of Introducing...The Kelley Nicole
  • A sense of hope for the future and for one's capacity to excel
These workshops can be catered to a variety of topics, depending on the needs of the participants, school and program.
