At Unseen, we often see the value and benefit of therapeutic art and craft activities for the people we support. Whether it is with residents in our Safehouses or with groups of survivors rebuilding their lives in the community, we know that when survivors take part in creative activities it gives them the opportunity to explore their feelings in imaginative and reflective ways.
Our partnership with the Chaiya Art Awards celebrates and supports the therapeutic value of creativity and the deeply important role that it can play in the process of healing.
“A relationship with our imagination is a relationship with our deepest self.” – Pat B Allen
Connection with the imagination can be a transformational step in a person’s healing. It helps survivors to process their past and, importantly, to develop the courage to begin imagining a safe and more positive future.
