Empowering children affected by the Earthquake and Tsunami of 2011 to build a sculpture for their new school

Hannah is an installation artist, with several years of experience teaching and creating public art sculptures. She is currently studying occupational therapy at SUNY Downstate Medical Center, and hopes to use her creative skills to promote the health and wellness of individuals and communities who have experienced trauma.

Yuka is a former project coordinator at Japan Committee for UNICEF, where she managed a pen-pal project for children affected by the Great Tohoku Earthquake and Tsunami of 2011.

We believe that recovery is ongoing for these children in Japan. With local organization Sweet Treat 311, we have developed an art workshop for children of Ogatsu, Miyagi, to create a sculpture for their new learning center. Thus, we empower these children as active participants in their community’s redevelopment.

 

WE NEED YOUR HELP!
