Type of mission
June – August, 2016 (3 month)
- 15 total asylum seekers
- 10 children and 5 teenagers
Over the course of 3 months, our team of Arts Therapists, who worked with asylum seekers, both children and adults, did their best to achieve the following.
Help children and teenagers express themselves, with their tension and anxiety.
Help them be joyful and enjoy being in a free space. Living in a foyer all together is difficult, and so to feel safe in the art-therapy group is extremely important.
Help reduce tensions between Eritrean and Syrian (difficulties in understanding each other).
Finally, to help bring them out of their social isolation.
