Owl & Panther

Owl & Panther is an expressive arts project designed to help refugee families relocated to Tucson, AZ who have been affected by trauma and torture. “On the seventh day, only the owl and the panther were still awake. Because they did not succumb to sleep, they were given the power to see in the dark.”
