Finding Peace

Finding peace from the Darkness into Light project uses art and photography and in particular social interaction and discussion during art making as a tool for healing and education, contributing to positive social change.

We are asking for people who have in some way been affected by the tragic events of March 15th 2019 to take part in a series of free workshops to be held between August and September and an exhibition of the works produced later in the year.

These series of art workshops are set up to allow a safe space for participants and provide creative tools to help moving towards healing and finding peace or raising Sakinah.
