Art and Community Center-Artpolis has implemented the second part of the sessions of the workshop “Creative Thinking for Empowerment of victims of trafficking and potential victims of trafficking”. This workshop foresees 8 sessions / activities with trafficked victims and potential victims of trafficking.
The aim of this activity is the women of above mention category to create something out of nothing and make them economically independent so that after the completion this course they would have the opportunity to work on their own. These workshops took place in the premises of the Center for Mental Health and under the supervision of artist Njomeza Luci.
The first three workshops were held on
dates: 09.09.2019, 10.09.2019 nd
12.09.2019. In these three
sessions participants had the opportunity to learn from Njomeza Luci about the
importance of work and the importance of being financially independent. The
artist has shared her experiences and her story of how she has succeeded in her
activity. The first workshop served as an acquaintance with each other, with
work, by measuring the creativity of women, and by discovering what they want
Meanwhile in the other workshops, the artist Njomza Luci managed to teach women the work of various jewelry like: beads, earrings, rings and other accessories, working techniques, types of materials, drawing of designs for the creation of handicrafts. Under the artist’s guidance women brought their unusable things to create something valuable and useful out of those things.
This course served and has been a lesson for participants so they can work from homes with minimal expenses and in the same time developing a creative thinking.
With their materials, from the sketches and drawings and with the help of the artist women participators took the real action. The beads and necklaces that were created from the first sessions were beautiful and of unique style that can be used on a daily basis or in special occasions. This creation offered much pleasure and developed their potential.
