In Movement: Art for Social Change
In Movement: Art for social change, promotes the well-being and socio-cultural development of orphaned and other underprivileged children in Uganda by providing a multi-disciplinary arts education program, which creates a vital space for their human growth, creativity and happiness. The organization accomplishes this through a multidimensional program, combining the following elements among others in a comprehensive strategy:
-Arts instruction- facilitators provide instruction and guide the creative process in music, dance, drama, visual arts, circus arts, and creative writing workshops.
-Field trips- In Movement believes that exposure to the world beyond the classroom setting is an important part of a young person’s development.
-Cultural activities- Students are involved in a variety of cultural events in Kampala throughout the year.
-Community service- Students participate in creating public mural projects, tree-planting activities, etc., as a way of understanding the importance of giving back to the community.
-Integration- In Movement coordinates activities such as art camps that bring together young people from different schools, genders, tribes, religions, racial and ethnic backgrounds, and socioeconomic strata.
-Psycho-social support- The In Movement counselor visits our partner facilities and has individual counseling sessions with our students
