Our Founder has been leading community arts projects around the world for the past twenty years. Starting with art and drama clubs as well as community mural projects in South Africa, to community gardens in the Philippines and India as well as numerous arts and wellbeing workshops around S.E Asia. Since 2011, as a team we have created educational resources, designed workshops (both online and in-person) and documented the healing journeys of participants who joined our wellbeing programmes. Many of our programmes were designed in response to the impact of natural disasters and poverty on the mental and emotional health of communities displaced by typhoons in the Philippines, the earthquake in Nepal and motivated by the restricted access to wellbeing programmes for underserved youth in South Africa, India, the Philippines and Sudan.
Upcoming programmes offer in-person opportunities for Northern Irish residents and blended opportunities for participants joining from South Africa, India, Sudan and the Philippines. The programmes include a range of media for individual and collaborative creative expression (ie visual arts, music, writing and performance) in response to prevalent social issues (gender-based violence, political upheaval, military oppression, racism) and environmental issues that affect us all.
