Arts for Good
Empowering Communities through Arts Education
7 - 14 May 2016 | Tamil Nadu, India
The SIF continued its partnership with former volunteer Dr Esther Joosa to conduct a train-the-trainers workshop entitled Empowering Communities through Arts Education. Some 25 social workers from four NGOs learnt how to incorporate the arts within their care-giving practices for communities affected by HIV.
The eight-day workshop commenced with an overview of arts-based initiatives designed for community development for 25 caregivers, and was followed by one-on-one mentorship sessions with Dr Joosa. She and the 25 caregivers also conducted various arts activities, such as self-portraiture sessions, with more than 100 local participants from HIV-affected communities in Tamil Nadu.
