“Sometimes simply giving someone the chance to explore for themselves what they have inside, is worth far more than hours of instruction.” ~ John Cope, Director of Stratton ABC Foundation.
To use ART as a tool for underprivileged children and communities to express themselves; to transform and transcend their environment.
A colourful wall mural, a simple little painting on the wall, a communal playground with art randomly placed, a painted post box or dustbin can bring smiles and a sense of ownership to the children and adults who crafted them. Art empowers them emotionally and gives them an useful craft or skill. Plus it’s fun!
Note: This is a non-religious organisation. I believe in giving children a voice through art regardless of ethnicity/religious or political backgrounds.
