Milton Art Hive

Bienvenidxs a la Colmena de Arte en Línea!

El distanciamiento social nos ha mostrado lo importante que es la conexión social en nuestro día a día.

La investigación científica, muestra que las actividades creativas ayudan a reducir la ansiedad al tiempo que promueven conexiones significativas, incluso cuando no podemos estar en la misma habitación.

Nuestro objetivo es ofrecer un espacio gratuito de expresión creativa, para compartir y conectarse con otros hispanohablantes en el mundo!

¡Los esperamxs!

Facilitadora: Ana Garcia MA.AT

Native Immigrant and Métèque have collaborated to open Native Immigrant Art Hive, a space to share our stories, create art, and love the land.

An experimental art hive has been set up in Arbat Refugee Camp ( I like the name Arc in English for our art hive! A safe place). At the moment it is only for girls and women of the community, ranging from 6 years upwards. STEP Iraq is an NGO that works in the Sulimanie region of Kurdistan with some of the most vulnerable children.  STEP has been working with Syrian children within the ARC refugee camp in a Child Friendly Space setting since 2013.  I am an art-therapist who has arrived relatively recently, and my job if that of a consultant for the staff members who are doing pyschosocial creative activities with the children and youth who come to our safe space.  As a trained art therapist, I obviously wanted to be able to practise art therapy; to use my skills to help certain children and youth express themselves through creative means, within a safe, professional and therapeutic context. This I have begun to do, but I realised very quickly that I wanted to create a safe context where I could invite bigger groups of different members of the community to participate in creative activities and to experience potential therapeutic benefits.  This is when I discovered the idea of 'art-hives'.  My hope is that this art-hive will benefit  the ARC community, in the short term, and perhaps inspire some of its members to one day open their own art-hive spaces in other parts of Iraq and be kind, be human and be the change.....

The Artworks Collective is founded on the premise that through the making of art and the building of relationships in an art collective setting, individual lives, art, and communities can be made and transformed. We believe that in this way, we become personally and socially transformed and transformative in relation to ourselves and others. 

We at the collective are especially dedicated in taking the challenges that get in the way of art making, relationship, and community building and using them in the service of personal and social transformation.

Though the team at The 296 Project doesn't offer Art Therapy directly, it is very much at the core of what we do to provide the resources to a program participant who is in need.

We believe that Art Therapy, as in any form of creative expression, can give our program participants a voice where they may not have had one before. The tenets of art therapy involve humanism, creativity, reconciling emotional conflicts, fostering self-awareness, and personal growth.
