Artistic learning helps youth to gain self-confidence and integrate themselves in their communities, thereby helping them to develop empathy, tolerance, and the ability to work in teams.
In Movement coordinated an event that was the first of its kind in Uganda – a 4-day creative facilitation training for approximately 30 creative facilitators and youth workers from different youth empowerment organizations, followed by a 5-day residential art camp with approximately 33 staff and 45 Ugandan young people ranging in age from 13-17.
The event was held at Hope North Uganda, a school committed to providing secondary education, vocational training and healing for young people, many of whom were traumatized by the civil war in the northern part of the country. The training and camp was co-facilitated by Charlie Murphy (co-founder) and Khari McClelland (senior trainer) from US-based Partners for Youth Empowerment (www.pyeglobal.org), as well as by In Movement staff.
