We are moved and inspired by the creativity and resourcefulness of the humans we interact with. We want to share their stories through their unique creativity and self-expression.
This is why we chose art therapy as a method of design.
Art therapy is originated in the fields of human development and visual art. It’s based on the idea that creative process involved in self-expression helps humans to develop self-awareness and insight. It encourages people to express their thoughts, feelings, ideas and experiences in a unique and subjective way through art.
In November 2016, in partnership with Small Projects Istanbul
we came together with 40 displaced Syrian refugee children aged from 6 to 12.
Following HCPC’s guidelines on art therapy and with the assistance of therapists and local translators, we conducted art therapy workshops encompassing themes of line-art, process-art, memory canvas and self-portrait.
Our art therapy programs provided a playful, non-judgmental and free space for children to discover their surroundings and create freely. We celebrate their freedom of self-expression and we proudly embrace their unique reflections.
We believe this is the most genuine form of design.
