india - 2024 | project: "art as empowerment" (planned)

in partnership with jhamtse gatsal, usa

the art and art therapy project we envisioned for and with jhamtse gatsal children's community is unfolding thanks to a first 'reconnaissance trip' in arunachal pradesh (north east india) planned in march 2024.

the purpose of the first part of the mission is breathing in the ethos and the vision of the community founded by lobsang phuntsok, sharing with the teams and understanding their needs as well as those of the children

further more, to feel the land of the monpas (ethnic group of this himalayan region) and to immerse ourselves in depth in the local traditional culture, of tibetan origin, this is truly what will allow us to design our program: “art as empowerment” in the most appropriate way.

a couple of weeks after the beginning russian invasion in ukraine, elovution has organized a charity sale of one hundred artworks in order to mobilize the potentials of art as vectors of peace and resilience. 

more than 50 artists - from all over france - have offered one or several pieces of art: paintings, original drawings, photographies, ceramic, street art...

thanks to the sale, a benefit of 8,425.00 euros has been raised and directly transferred to our ukrainian partner 'voices of children' who implements art therapy workshops for children suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder in the field.
