The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
We use the power of creativity to collaborate and create sustainable community to change.
Move the World believes in the power of artists and their impact on the world. We host skills exchange trips to Ghana with emerging artists from the UK for 3 weeks, where they are immersed in traditional Ghanaian culture, taken on a personal discovery and given the opportunity to work alongside local community leaders and projects. These trips are designed for emerging artists to develop their confidence and career goals while allowing them to give back to a developing community.
The trips allow emerging artists the opportunity to travel while still using their skills in the arts. They meet inspiring change makers who have a strong will to make change in their communities. They are challenged to discover more about themselves in an environment rich with colour, music and dance. And further, are involved with our locally led impact projects to understand different perspectives about themselves and the world.
Participants use the arts to break down boundaries between language and culture to enhance a strong international connection.
