CREA THERA - Facilitating creative and therapeutic help in post conflict areas
Since 2006, Crea Thera has been providing music and art therapy services in municipalities of Srebrenica and Tuzla, intending to create safe space and stimulate creativity among generations affected by post conflict consequences. Crea Thera provides psychological support to the most vulnerable groups, such as children, people with mental and physical disabilities and psychiatric day care patients, while fostering mutual cooperation, understanding and creativity through music and art therapy.
In 2007, Crea Thera developed its first independent project “Mother”, providing music, dance and theater workshops for children from Srebrenica and Potocari. In collaboration with other organizations, Crea Thera offered many of its creative workshops to youth and children participating in Srebrenica summer camps. In 2009, the organization had leased out a building, where local Crea Thera team members continue to work with children, youngsters and psychiatric day care patients, continuously providing a safe space where vulnerable groups can receive music and art therapy.
In a society where asking for and offering therapy remains a taboo, our objective is to integrate basic elements of music and art rehabilitation into school curriculums and programs of mental health institutions. At the moment, Crea Thera is collaborating with Mental Health Center in Srebrenica where it regularly holds music and art therapy workshops. In addition, its team members are working with children in the region, providing creative workshops for children and youth in Srebrenica and Skelani.
Help us continue our work and bring about a positive change in Srebrenica, by getting involved or financially supporting our organization. At the moment we are looking to raise 1400£ which will cover Srebrenica- Skelani travel costs, small instrument repairs and purchase of art supplies necessary for holding our workshops.
