Mission and Objectives: 

Creart is a Non Profit Organization that works to improve the quality of the children education and their living conditions, using the art as a tool of transformation. The main goal of our activities and workshops is that they are used to learn how to face the conflicts between people in a positive and educational way, promoting creativity, confidence, self esteem, respect to the others and an active participation of the people. Creart also uses the art as therapy, specifically as psychosocial support for children who suffer difficult situations caused by wars, natural disasters and others.

Main Projects / Activities: 

First of all, Creart carries out Training of trainers through arts (body language, arts and crafts, music, theatre, etc.) in Spain, Gaza Strip and West Bank (Occupied Palestinian Territories) and Colombia, mainly with social workers and volunteers. Creart also develops workshops of creativity and conflict with children, mothers, young people, excombatants etc. in Spain, Occupied Palestinian Territories and Colombia. On the other hand, we have project to improve the educational conditions of children in Senegal through the rehabilitation and construction of educative infrastructures and trainings for teachers. It is also needed to say that Creart carries out trainings for teachers in Spain and Occupied Palestinian Territories, specifically with UNRWA's teachers.
