Mission

The imagination can be a potent force for healing, especially in times of crisis and conflict. Arts for Life's programs: - Facilitate safe emotional release and relief through creative self-expression; - Reframe crisis, loss, and conflict into opportunities for growth and discovery; - End isolation imposed by trauma and create healing community; - Build upon the inherent strengths of cultural heritage; - Channel the energies of violence in all its forms into life-affirming creations; - Promote compassionate community across borders and belief systems. We also aim to provide meaningful survival work for artists in all media and to nurture their creativity through mentoring programs and creative community.
