Working with artists, teachers and healthcare workers a series of programs where activated in schools to help children and families to feel better about themselves and to find creative solutions to life’s challenges. Students actively engaged to explore arts techniques including dance, drama, music, movement, role play, circus, mask-making, mosaic, multimedia, painting, puppetry and poetry to explore mental health issues in highly creative, problem-solving, solution focused, health promoting ways and having fun at the same time… and producing performance and exhibition events combined with all the nearby schools to share and celebrate their diversity and common humanity.
