Seminars within the Community Arts Network

regional seminars

Community Arts Network ran 2 other regional meetings- in Bucuresti and Cluj- that brought together many practitioners from several counties.

The National Arts for Community Network continued the regional Conferences series on `Stimulation and Development for People with Disabilities through Art- a field in expansion` with two events: Bucharest on April 20th and Cluj on June 27th 2007.

The Bucharest Conference, held at the French Institute with the support of FONPC, brought together about 53 members of the network, representatives of NGOs, Child Protection Committees and Special Centres in the southern area of the country, part of which (Tulcea, Calarasi, Braila, Ialomita) took part in such an event for the first time, having joined the network in 2005.

The main focus of the Conference was that arts can be performed at various levels, based on the needs of the beneficiaries, but having clear classification criteria regarding the Art Therapy levels and any other stimulation/ development through Art.

Most of the participants at the Conference in Cluj represented local Child Protection Committees and Day Centres or Residential Homes. Their experience in the field was very basic and their interest was focused on work techniques. The debates were around what types of activities could be turned into further projects: staff training and qualifications, experience exchange, resources for development etc.

The opinion pole regarding the support the Network provides for its members, highlighted that various answers from different areas of interest, that can be grouped into main categories:

experience exchange from conferences, workshops, meetings; training courses for the staff in the field of art stimulation; receiving various pieces of information; editing models of good practice/ advice for various techniques; material support.

O initiativa laudabila.

Este de dorit sa se mai intample astfel de activitati, pentru ca terapia prin arta, acesta `metoda alternativa` de ingrijire va trebui pana la urma sa fie luata in serios...

Mult succes in continuare
