When you couple the process of evoking what is within with the creative process, which helps people to find their words and images and believe in their power to put them out in the world, the result is social change, not always monumental, but real social change from the inside out.
24 girls from Faith and Hope Aid Orphanage in Kisugu, along with 4 female creative facilitators from In Movement participated in a daylong event at the In Movement facility in celebration of the United Nation’s first International Day of the Girl. The day was promoted by the organization 10 x 10, which is working to raise awareness about the importance of educating girls. The theme of the day was “Helping the girl child to discover her worth in society.” In Movement used storytelling and visual arts to help the girls to speak from within, and raise their level of self-confidence and self-esteem. The girls also participated in an activity in which they were asked to describe in words and pictures some of their female role models in society, and share with the larger group.
