Past Project: 2016

Empowering Communities Through Arts Education

We continued our partnership with SIF’s volunteer Dr Esther Joosa to conduct a train-the-trainers workshop, where 25 social workers from four non-governmental organisations learnt how to incorporate the arts into their care-giving practices for communities affected by HIV.

The eight-day workshop began with an overview of arts-based initiatives designed for community development, followed by one-on-one mentorship sessions with Dr Joosa. Together with the 25 caregivers, she also conducted various arts activities for over 100 participants from HIV-affected communities in Tamil Nadu.
