How can we unfold our journeys and reflect this new climate through the languages of arts forms as a human being and as a sense of community?

We will interplay between the physical body, cognition, imagination, emotions and spirit. The project invites participants to consider experimentation as a working method and to trust the process and the therapeutic environment.


The project will be targeted at adults who would like to:

  • · Expressing themselves creatively
  • · Learn to explore through movements and visual Art forms
