Arts Therapy Humanitarian Mission

February to November 2016 | Erbil, Kurdistan

The art therapists started the workshop by inviting everyone to hold up their scarves which are tied together, to symbolise a circle of trust where issues and problems surfaced in the course of the workshop will be respected and kept confidential. Photo Credit: Edwin Koo

The SIF partners Red Pencil International and Jiyan Foundation to conduct a three-step train-the-trainer programme for 20 psychotherapists who are working with Syrian children living at Qushtapa camp in Erbil, Kurdistan.  The programme will equip participants with art therapy knowledge and skills which will be incorporated into their current psychotherapeutic approaches. This programme is part of SIF’s Arts for Good initiative, which seeks to promote awareness of social issues, share best practices and enable action for positive social impact through the arts.
