Recently, Harutyun Harutyunyan and I, Manu Harutyunyan, participated in an “Art Therapy” program organized by the KreArtiviti Association in Osijek, Croatia.
KreARTivity is a unique project that provides an opportunity for youth workers that work with young people, in an informal environment, to explore the power of arts – through art (color, form, technique), drama (acting) and using their body and their own expression through movement.
All for the purpose of introducing innovative elements into their own work and empowering young people of different profiles with whom they work. The activities are adapted to work with young people in physical contact or virtually.
A wonderful program that provided a wealth of knowledge like he did, helped each of us to make many discoveries within ourselves.
The environment was such that we all became one family, we got to know each other better day by day and tried to draw parallels in the relationship between an art therapist and a patient.
In that program, we were both art therapists and patients, which helped us to explore the field even further.
The impressions are very vivid, from the program, from Croatia, and from the people who were by our side all the time.
Many thanks to Kreaktiva and FIOH for giving me the opportunity to participate in this wonderful project
