04.04.2019 / 11.04.2019
In the continuance of the workshops, the last two activities within this cycle were held on 04.04.2019 and 11.04.2019. The participants of the workshop “Creative Thinking for Empowerment of victims of trafficking and potential victims of trafficking” proceeded with their work under the mentoring of the artist Njomza Luci.
This activity for women of victims of the category trafficking and potential victims of trafficking, created for them a safe and comfortable space in Artpolis premises where they can work and learn new things so necessary for their life, to socialize with each other and spend a nice day.
The aim of this activity is that the women of above mention category can create something out of nothing and make them economically independent so that after the completion of this course they would have the opportunity to work on their own through creative thinking.
Beautiful and functional bags for everyday use, as well as for special occasions, and laptop bags, were finalized by giving the last touch, decoration. The final products were very creative, beautiful and unique.
At the end of the workshops, the participants were certified. They benefitted a lot from this activity, like: knowledge, society, relaxation. In the end, they exchanged contacts with hopes that their association will continue further.
But, this is not how this activity will end. Center for Art and Community – Artpolis will open an exhibition with these finalized products and on June 14, 2019, within the Femart 2019 festival, the bags will be sold. The funds raised from this activity will be dedicated to the same women participating in the activity.
