Nature and Context

Using digital networks, academic research, creative entrepreneurialism, creative spaces, and artistic production, communities can let art speak of the trauma they are experiencing. From street artists in Libya to theatre makers in DR Congo to musicians in Sierra Leone and dance groups in Sri Lanka, a plethora of truly inspiring work is being made in incredible circumstances across the world. This sort of art brings communities together and educates the world their very specific pain and recovery process.
