Mission Statement

Using community-based art, we nurture hope, cultivate well-being, and promote agency with conflict-affected youth and societies worldwide.


We are a non-profit organization pioneering the innovative work of arts-based psychosocial programming for youth and communities in conflict contexts. Working with adolescents and their communities through the medium of art, we invest in building knowledge, skill sets and resources that strengthen their mental and emotional capacities, and allow them to move beyond the mindset of basic survival brought on by living through conflict. At the heart of our work is the belief that art is a powerful catalyst that can help people heal and rebuild their lives and communities. We envision a world in which everyone’s capabilities are awakened and put into action to benefit themselves, their communities, and others.
