“WRAP is honored to be partnering with Zillow Group in bringing this virtual recycled art creation program to Zillow Group’s global employee base,” says Yana Good Nigen WRAP’s Executive Director, “These recycled art creation experiences unite teams, alleviate stress, and build resilience so much needed these days. We are in this together and art will help us heal and become stronger.”
Derek Gores who conducted the workshop says, “Creating art lets the mind wander and have some breathing room so the imagination can play. When we can be creative and joyful in our imaginations, we then bring that spirit out into the real world as well.”
