ArtAbility is a year-long project made up of regular art workshops. The workshops are structured to provide opportunities for creativity, while also addressing psychosocial rehabilitation and skill building. It is also important to mention that all art groups are facilitated in a trauma informed and culturally sensitive manner and that workshops will be facilitated by the project coordinators, art therapists and professional artists. Workshops will also be developed to foster creative flow and will include drawing and using as inspiration found objects, multimedia and new technologies, photography and collage. Participants will meet at the end of each workshop to share and discuss their artworks, to receive feedback, compliments and suggestions and to determine work plans for their creations.
