This is the first year the Just Healing network is offering both a Healing Justice Practice Space AND a Healing Together Network Gathering at the Allied Media Conference (AMC)! As a fundraiser to support the Healing Together Network Gathering and ensure that it is an accessible space for all, we are offering a three poster series of community and self care posters developed by talented artists in the healing community! Thank you to Fiona Avocado, Jacks McNamara, TextaQueen and Fabian Romero for the amazing pieces they created.
Posters will be available on our website by next week, which can be shipped to your door or picked up at local hubs. Individual posters are $15 each, or all three beautiful posters can be purchased as a set at a price of $35 for individuals or $45 for businesses and organizations.
Please share info about the fundraiser widely with your friends, family and communities. See you at the AMC in June!

Texta Queen Renowned for use of the humble felt-tip marker to boldly re-interpret the tradition of the salon nude, TextaQueen explores politics of sex, gender and identity in tangent with ideas of self-image and inter-personal relationships. Texta’s practice articulates delicate interplays between vulnerability and empowerment, intimacy and exhibitionism, and subjective and collective expressions of feminist, queer, and cultural identities.
