New Publication! Transformimi: Dikur, Tani Dhe Nesër/Transformation: Past, Present, Future in Therandës-Suharekës, Kosovo
ArtsAction Group: Kosova presents a visual narrative documenting our 2019 project, Transformimi: Dikur, Tani Dhe Nesër/Transformation: Past, Present, Future in Therandës-Suharekës, Kosovo.
We share a brief background of our collective before moving into the Kosovo partnership and context. We finish with our 2019 project created on the 20th anniversary of the NATO bombings.
Through this shared work we reflect on the impact the arts can have in transforming communities with a focus on the role of socially engaged art and healing in fostering capabilities and human development during rebuilding. We hope to shed light on the possibilities inherent in our shared work, always defined by the relational aspects of environment, identities, and experiences of all (Desai, 2019). You can see the book here or a companion website here.
Partnerships We want to thank Jillian Fishback, a high school student and owner of JFdesigns. Jillian brought together her passion for designing shoes with her passion for helping others. Seeking a way to make a difference in the world through the arts, she created a line of custom shoes with 15% of the proceeds which went directly to ArtsAction Group. The work is beautiful as is her commitment to children and youth globally. If interested in ordering a pair of these custom drawn shoes or if you want to learn more, please email firstname.lastname@example.org, and follow @_jfdesigns on Instagram to see the work. Thank you Jillian for partnering with ArtsAction Group.
