Bio: Kate Pane is an a visual artist and art therapist in child welfare. She aids the healing process for family survivors of sex trafficking, violence and abuse. Her practice explores the intersection between personal narrative, painting, clinical psychology, art education, and activism. She brought art as therapy to incarcerated youth, and focused her research on an exploration of the effectiveness of textile manipulation, costume building and the therapeutic relationship to influence identity formation with adults who are mentally ill and chemically addicted.
Print: It all comes down to our ability to find and act on empathy in our day to day interactions. Going out of our way to help the elderly off the bus, picking up someone’s dropped groceries, saying good morning, how are you to the homeless man on the subway. It’s surprising how that simple smile in passing can validate a person as a human being. Empathy can go so much further than we think.
Charity: “Artistic Noise exists to bring the freedom and power of artistic practice to young people who are incarcerated, on probation, or otherwise involved in the justice system. Through visual arts and entrepreneurship programs in Massachusetts and New York, our participants give voice to their experiences, build community through collaborative projects, and learn valuable life and job skills. Artistic Noise creates safe spaces where court-involved youth can be seen, heard and supported on their path to adulthood. We believe the practice of making art offers opportunities for young people and communities to transform.” Donate to Artistic Noise
