Dear Colleagues,

This newsletter is dedicated to the use of Arts in our practice, as a way to engage and empower children and youth. Providing structured group art activities help build resilience and contribute to the positive mental wellbeing of children and young people. You can find useful resources around this topic and updates from a pilot project of Tdh with International Institute for Child Rights Development (IICRD) for children affected by migration and conflict in Iraq and Eygpt, through artistic projects.

November will be a true webinar month, with many interesting sessions scheduled! Book your calendars as we plan to discuss the YouCreate,  The PROMISE Child Participation Tool, The European Barnahus MovementChild SafeguardingEthics of helping interventions and more topic coming up.

Under the focus topic, you'll find some highlights of the most important materials from the past two weeks on ChildHub.
