"Every child deserves to reach her or his full potential, but gender inequalities in their lives and in the lives of those who care for them hinder this reality (UNICEF). Across India, gender-based violence is a tremendous challenge. Allowing children and teenagers to become healthy and creative adults, and living life in which they harness their innate human potentials is therefore of vast importance and need.
Living through an experience of gender-based violence is a huge burden for any person, regardless of their gender. Arts practice and storytelling in a group can be a safe and meaningful container to work through and transform fears arising from such events.
What stories can we discover, share and tell together that can educate and inspire readers - peers, parents and society alike to understand what each one of them has gone through and to take action towards stopping such events?
Red Dot Foundation is pleased to partner with the Consulate General of the Federal Republic of Germany in Mumbai and Mosaics and Circles in facilitating a series of workshops entitled Art for Healing.
15 young women in Western India will undergo a series of four workshops and learn the art of storytelling, strategies to deal with survivors' trauma and create a story from their life's experience. These stories will be published in a book and will serve as a resource for survivors of sexual and gender based violence.
