Current Projects

Arts Aid Emergency Kits

Artsaidkit

We have taken art therapy from a reactionary, palliative practice into an offensive, preventative power.

The Arts Aid Kits provide a positive distraction in the moment of crises, breaking the cycle of traumatizing thoughts disrupting the “loop” of stress which reinforces the pain of the event and which soothes, calms and provides immediate mental and emotional first aid during the critical time frame between the event, the crystallization of memory and onset of the disorder.
