Art-Making with Refugees and Survivors: Creative and Transformative Responses to Trauma


Product Description

Published UK, 2018
This book explores how creativity and the expressive arts can be therapeutic for refugees and survivors of natural disasters, poverty, war, pandemic and genocide. Artists and therapists behind group art projects worldwide reveal how art enables people to heal by coming together, tapping into their creativity, finding their voices and learning how to narrate their stories after traumatic experiences. The case studies reflect a wide range of projects, including work with survivors of the HIV/AIDS pandemic in South Africa, Syrian war refugees in Jordan and survivors of the tsunami in Sri Lanka.

Sally Jones is the Director of TransformArta and has taught transformative art education at The University of Victoria in Canada.
