Nexus Dream Weaving, created by the young women at the Nexus Recovery Center, Dallas, Texas. Each participant wrote a desire for their future on a strip of paper and wove it through simmering fibers as a means to express their belief in themselves. Nexus Dream Weaving is displayed at the Adolescent Center of Nexus. Additionally, Perkins developed the curriculum for the Nexus mentoring program through art making. This program provides the young women an opportunity to freely express, develop positive life skills and to appropriately interact with peers. Art making is truly healing.
