With the Butterfly Art Project’s 2021 art campaign, “manifesting the new” we aim to empower children and youth. The painting process will teach them how they can be present, realising the needs of the moment, listening to the future impulses and then taking action to create something new. The painting process will guide participants in how they can honour the past by building on the good foundations or avoid making the same mistakes. By acknowledging the current situation with all the evil in the world and still have hope for a brighter future for themselves and their communities. Participants will hopefully build the courage to stare their challenges in the face and choose to move on and work on a better tomorrow.
