Pilot Arts Program

Ioana was asked by Artists Striving to End Poverty (in collaboration with the International Rescue Committee) to help develop a new after-school program for children of refugee status. The goal is to use the arts as a catalyst to empower students by building confidence, strengthening their creative problem-solving skills, and developing a sense of community that bridges their multiculturalism. 

The children involved in the program come from countries all over the world including Nepal, Burma, Thailand, Tibet, Iraq, Guinea, Congo, Sierra Leone, Senegal, Cuba, Togo, China, Morocco, Haiti, Dominican Republic, and Bangladesh.
