Event Description Hope Made Visible™ is a local and international Expressive Arts Therapy program Alessandra Colfi started in 2012 as part of the PhD research at San Diego Cancer Research Institute. The underpinning philosophy being the process of transformation of consciousness of individuals affected by cancer from co-dependency and disconnection to deep interconnectedness by raising empathetic awareness and restoring hope and resilience, essential qualities for humans to thrive. Connecting with others locally and internationally patients become aware of being a part of something greater, have a purpose, lift their spirit knowing others are thinking about them, sharing their journeys and what helped them by symbolically creating and sharing art flags. Together we make hope visible. Approximately 2,000 flags made by patients from all over the world have been collected and exhibited locally and internationally, adding another layer of patients' satisfaction, pride and feeling connected beyond cancer.
