Art for Mind


Lodz, PL

This project is a response to the current political situation related to the war in Ukraine. By organizing such an event, we wanted to contribute to the improvement of the welfare of people from Ukraine and enable them to release their emotions and regulate stress by painting together. Children who were taken out of their homes had the opportunity to integrate with each other, develop their artistic skills and at the same time improve their well-being. We managed to bring smiles to their faces and we are very proud that we were able to contribute to their happiness even in a small way.
