ARTY brings together actors from the fields of mental health, youth work, non-formal education, arts and culture.
Aim of the ARTY project is to:
Extend the competences of youth workers, psychologists, social workers and practitioners in Greece, Italy, Spain, Cyprus and Romania, who work with vulnerable youth with developing or existing mental health conditions, in order to be able to offer continuous support to their beneficiaries, even during lockdowns and quarantine situations, by utilizing digital art therapy.
Enhance access to CSOs, youth workers, psychologists, social workers and practitioners to a guide which links creativity and the role of art approaches when working towards mental wellbeing of young people. The guide will also include practical strategies to help youth with psychological disorders to address hidden pressures and stressors through art making and exploration, showing the potential of art as a healing strategy.
Enhance access to CSOs and relevant stakeholders to an awareness raising toolkit on the impact of COVID-19 to youth with developing or existing mental health conditions.
