Hurricane Sandy Art Relief Caravan Project
Thank you so very much for your continued support of the Children's Movement for Creative Education's Hurricane Sandy Art Relief Caravan Project. We launched the program a week following the storm as a response to attend to the emotional needs of the children and teens in the most adversely affected communities. We never expected it would need to become a long term program.

Over the first few months we have implemented art-healing workshops in Red Hook, Coney island, Gerritsen Beach and the Rockaways. Thank you for being so central to its success; it could not have happened without your critical support.

The Art Relief Caravan Project has further been strengthened by two incredible collaborations. The New York University Graduate Department of Art Therapy has joined our team, as well as the Rockaway-based grassroots relief initiative, Smallwater. Smallwater has been most generous in opening their doors to house our programs.

Like our community ties, our art relief work continues to grow and deepen. This past spring, award-winning photojournalist Ron Haviv guided healing-centered workshops for our Rockaways participants. The project gave the teenagers tools for expression in order to find hope for the future and solace in the present.

Thank you for continuing to help us celebrate the spirit of our community. We look forward to including you in our future success.

Yours, Elana Haviv, Executive Director
 

“...the spirit of hope dwells here...in art and in words. And, of course, in the children themselves, who have the potential to right earlier generations’ wrongs.”
