Ban On Bullying as
Art Therapy to
Re-Assign Your Mind


Spring 2022 – Summer 2023

Our focus at COLLOQUIUM DEPOT, LTD., has been largely on youth combating abuse/bullying through Education, Entertainment and the Arts.

More recently, we decided to broaden our scope to include adults, which enabled a sharing of positive skills learned from their past experiences of opening doors, and expanded the Arts to ‘Arts Therapy’.

Of utmost importance is the development of positive thinking and behavior, which can be nurtured by activities that are personally liberating and esteem building. We achieved this by working in collaboration with Puddingstone Creatives at the Vine Street Community Center in Roxbury, Boston, Mass., by creating workshops, leading to play readings and performances.

On April 24, 2023, Puddingstone Creatives, in conjunction with Colloquium Depot, Ltd., presented “The Biographical Dyad Workshop”. The Lab Members first read the performance poem, “BULLY”, written by the Workshop Facilitator, Verna Hampton, then participated in the “Biographical Dyad Workshop.”

The accompanying photographs capture some of their rehearsing experiences.


Re-Assign Your Mind


Summer 2021 – Spring 2022

ART on the HILL

Mark Twain said, “The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why.” Working with Artistic Curator, Pauline McCall Houston, one can see how easily that can be attained, by way of the arts.

In taking that another step further, COLLOQUIUM DEPOT, LTD. believes that during discovery, one can also learn how to “Re-Assign Your Mind‘.

Our project, “Re-Assign Your Mind‘, is intergenerational and includes attending three 3-hr workshops, where one can learn how to interpret, paint and share emotions, on a specially designed T-Shirt, that can be later worn with pride.
