Every Wednesday the Social Spot of Caritas Hellas In Neos Kosmos hosts painting lessons for youth and adults.
The beneficiaries, with the guidance of the volunteer and professor of Fine Arts Katerina Drossopoulou, painted faces, objects, landscapes and every time, they get a better knowledge of expressing through art and using art as a mean of communication and sentimental expression.
Via Art there was interaction between beneficiaries from Iran, Afghanistan and teenagers who visited the Social Spot of Neos Kosmos from various shelters of the International Organization of Migrants who, through their collaboration to the artistic activities, they are experiencing the delight of multicultural interaction, they discover that each one of them had a talent and filled their day with arts and colours.
The lessons are part of the «METAVASIS Project – Participation, Empowerment and Social Inclusion of Refugees / Migrants in Greece» concerning the support and integration of refugees and immigrants in Greek society. The Project is run by Caritas Hellas and is funded by Caritas Germany.
