Yesterday a young boy in a refugee camp made this. When I was cleaning up, I loved how the brushes were still attached because he had dumped half a bottle of acrylic paint on the canvas. I didn’t panic, but made the best out of it and added another brush.

The day was filled with lots of colors, canvases and sooo many children. We lost count at 60. It’s the biggest art workshop I’ve ever facilitated but I made sure to bring an overabundance of acrylic colors, brushes and massive size canvases for collaboration art. The children were in their element and created some beautiful art. After the art workshop, we took the hygiene packs from tent to tent and container to container. The very last area, I saw this beautiful flower growing in the hot Greek sun. After the long day it gave me a little hope that everything will be ok. I don’t look for it anywhere else, but in nature, synchronicities and people that are coming in and out of my life. Everything always works out in the end. It’s a nice feeling, among the chaos, to be confident that all will work out.

Our RAW exhibition has come to a close. The four women’s stories were shared and awareness was created. We thank all that came by and our lovely host, Claudia. We will miss Crete.

We aim to provide refugees in Greek camps, shelters, and housing communities with a source of emotional expression and economic self-empowerment while giving them a platform to spread awareness of the conditions in which they live and their varied and largely unmet needs. We provide donation-funded art supplies to the refugees–men, women, and children alike–then exhibit and sell the resulting works of art around the world with the help of communities that help to host art shows. We return one hundred percent of the earnings from the sale of refugees’ artwork to the artist who created each piece.

​We additionally raise funds for, purchase, and distribute material aid to fill the immediate and unmet needs of these and other refugees. This aid includes but is not limited to tents and sleeping bags for refugees sleeping outside, temporary housing for particularly vulnerable individuals and their families, hygiene products for women and children, and food for refugees with no financial aid that are living in camps and housing communities.


We have held exhibitions around the world with the support of local volunteers. Have we been to your city yet?
