Workshop with children asylum seekers

When I start a workshop, I used to say to my students that I’m not here to teach them art,  but to give them a tool that will allow them to tell their desires, their dreams, their inner battles.  Whether it’s through photography, painting, installation, film or one of the many other mediums to express one’s creativity; art provides a platform to raise awareness and encourages refugees to find their own potential. Being able to express ourselves without judgement is one of the most therapeutic aspects of making art.
