HeArts and Dreams
Workshops and Training
Bespoke training and workshops using art and creativity to engage people with issues and questions around refuge, migration, mental health and well-being.
Why this Programme?
First, to support individuals interested in the subject of migration, refugees and wellbeing to increase their awareness and understanding of these subjects, and build their confidence to display a valuable creative response through art.
Secondly, to use visual art as a tool for recovery and maintenance of good wellbeing, and to learn how to communicate and share important messages and feelings that could tackle stigma and reduce discrimination.
Finally, to create a safe environment where we all (human beings) come together, unite and find alternative ways to recreate our experience, dreams and values into a new palette and language to communicate to the wider audience.
