We have received a message for our project from Esther Vossen, who was in Japan until recently to give a lecture and a workshop in our program. As a director of the Fifth Season, she runs an artist-in-residency at a psychiatric institution in the Netherlands.
The dear Me workshops of the AIT foundation are very encouraging for children that has got less opportunities in their lives as most of us do. By means of art can they can express themselves and share their thoughts and feelings. dear Me provides a safe space for kids to express themselves as art in itself is open and doesn’t judge.
