Shanita, Architect (Netherlands)

“This was such a liberating and relaxing experience! It allowed me to slow down, switch off my mind, and just connect with my feelings. I began to draw without a plan and then ideas started coming to me about how I can express my pain and get it out of my system through simple doodles. I even made body art, which I hadn’t done since I was young. It was unexpectedly great!”

Areli, Nurse (Mexico)

“All my expectations were exceeded! I went to the Creative Empowerment session a little anxious because I didn’t know what to expect. However, I was able to relax very quickly, connect with amazing new people, and reconnect with my Mexican roots through my creativity. Highly recommended!”

Ineke Hurkmans, Founder of the Jump Movement (Netherlands)

“We don’t often take time to be together without an agenda and create something without a plan. But this experience was a great reminder that creativity can not only help you rest and recharge but also help you connect with yourself and others in a profound way. I loved it!”

Milagros, President Centro Latinoamericano de Orientacion (Venezuela)

For me, it’s not easy to sit down and rest. I’m always running around doing something. But when I looked at the other women around me enjoying themselves doing creative things, I pulled a chair and just joined them. I got inspired and started drawing without anything in mind. All of a sudden, I saw my mother’s eyes in my drawing. It was so special!”
