Aimee Wissman is a visual artist, activist, culture changer and the founder of the Returning Artists Guild, a network of currently and formerly incarcerated artists. Aimee works as an arts administrator by day, is a student by night, and an artist all the time. Her work deals with the impacts and implications of incarceration, addiction, and societal infrastructure through material exploration and community action. Aimee will walk participants through her journey of using art to heal from her past traumas and addiction. She will also lead short interactive exercises to demonstrate the healing power of art.
You can find Aimee on social media at @aimeeinks and @thereturningartistsguild.
