UN/HIDE CDArthelps in IRAQ
Thousands of people live in a refugee-camp near the Iraqi city of Mosul. They have all left their homes to protect themselves from guns and hatred. The people in the huge refugee camp long more and more for safety, comfort and a carefree everyday life – especially the youngest ones. We created places in the camp where children and young people can unleash their creativity. Quiet places where they can process what has happened to them and find new strength.
ARTHELPS is an initiative of creative people and artists who help people from socially disadvantaged backgrounds in a special way: with art. With various creative projects we offer them a stage on which they can discover their artistic potential and live it out. And we give them a voice: through the dissemination of their newly formed art work the messages of the participants are communicated to a welcoming audience.
