Art Partner Support

Training: offering art education to adults to implement healing art classes with children in their communities

Mentoring: enabling participants to effectively implement lessons learned and overcome challenges

Art Partner Support: nurturing a network of active and artistic participants who use their skills in vulnerable communities

The Butterfly Art Project trains, mentors and supports adults working with children in marginalised communities bringing psycho-social support through art. These direct beneficiaries are BAP's Community Art Facilitators (CAFs). They establish art groups, in which their learned psycho-social skills are utilised and the child’s uniqueness is encouraged. BAP currently has 144 CAFs active in 64 communities, which have become a most valuable resource for the region and its future challenges. In 2019 we reached out to at least 4000 children through our CAFs in the Western Cape. The BAP implementation testing centre is based in our double-storey building in Vrygrond were we serve a minimum of 300 local community children and youth weekly with healing art classes. Our adult training studio and team office is located in the garden courtyard of the Casa Labia Cultural Centre in Muizenberg. Next to the train station, making us accessible to the adults we serve.
