Last August I traveled to Bogota Colombia for the first time to offer art therapy services to the women, children and staff at Club Michin in the neighborhood of Santa Maria de Lago. The trip was funded by ARTS! By The People a non profit arts groups in the NJ and NYC area. Art therapy is a new field in Colombia and the staff were excited by the possibilities of using creative work for healing. Next year I am planning to return at least twice with graduate school interns and other professionals and provide some training and seminars for the staff. This requires airfare, lodging and materials and lots of preparation! Any help financially or through local contacts can go a long way!
