If you’re a lover of art and believe in the healing power of art therapy, this is a great film to support on Kickstarter. The film follows three journeys over three continents and uncovers ways that art is being used to “empower the human soul”.
Having been involved in art therapy myself though a non-profit in Alexandria, Egypt, teaching arts & crafts to elementary school children, and working with IDP’s through UNICEF and World Vision in Tblisi, Georgia, I have witnessed first hand how art can transform into healing.
Art Therapy: The Movie is a feature documentary about the innovative ways art is being used around the world to overcome emotional challenges and traumatic experiences. We’re profiling some incredible stories, including: a group of art therapy students traveling to the Dominican Republic to work with a group of orphans long forgotten about; art rehabilitation programs for inner-city youth in North America; and chronicling the devastation of natural disasters in South America and Japan and how art is helping in the healing process.
Karen Brown New York is thrilled to be supporting this project, and it means even more knowing that my friend Christine‘s cousin is the one who has been working on this. Funding ends on Wednesday, September 18 so hurry on over to Kickstarter to make your donation!
