Archived: In Movement – Art for Social Change in Uganda: Support a life-changing arts-based program that empowers underserved youth

iCrowdNewswire - Jun 2, 2015

In Movement – Art for Social Change in Uganda

In Movement’s Youth Art Camp is a transformative, week-long experience that uses arts education toengage and empower youth from underserved communities in Uganda.

Help us raise $8,000 to bring  50 students to camp!

If we raise over $8,000, we can expand our impact to even more students through more camps, weekend programs, and after-school workshops.

Since 2006 we have worked with over 1,800 youth from slums and underserved communities in Kampala, Uganda

We use dancedramamusiccreative writingvisual arts, and circus arts to develop creativity and self-expression.

Our program teaches participants to:

  • Develop tolerance and empathy for others
  • Use creative and interactive communication approaches with their peers in challenging situations
  • Explore identity and develop self-awareness
  • Develop intrapersonal skills to escape spirals of negative thinking
  • Navigate difficult circumstances in life, including poverty, abuse, disease, and conflict
  • Use curiosity and critical thinking to question the status quo
  • Imagine a better world and a brighter future for themselves

We need to raise $8,000 to cover the costs of transportation, accommodation, food, and a        jam-packed week of art workshops, educational                sessions, and teambuilding games for 50 campers. 

Our organization is in the midst of a strategic transition that will expand our impact and ensure long-term financial sustainability by adopting a social enterprise model. We are well on the way to success, but we need your help to cover the costs of this year’s programs

You can contribute by donating and sharing this campaign with your networks.
