  • How to get people started making art


    I would love to know Haruko's strategy for getting kids and adults in post-conflict areas involved in creative projects, particularly if they haven't before had access to art education. What sort of materials does she use? Is it possible to get people making art if you're very far away (meaning the person initiating the program isn't actually on the ground in the post-conflict area). How does she approach people who may have been traumatized by war and violence and get them started expressing themselves creatively? And does she have any experience/thoughts about doing this sort of work in countries that are still experiencing war and violence?
