Mosaic International's language and culture classes are offered to refugees in camp multiple times a week.
In September of 2016 Lana Arts Workshop & 'here there and EVERYwhere' teamed up with the Wash Project In Buffalo NY. Artists Jihan Kikhia and Tanya Gupta taught art activities to a mixed group of local, and newly arrived refugee children.
Mosaic International would like to thank The Wash Project for making our work in New York possible. Using the arts as a common denominator, The WASH Project establishes an outlet for the simple, open, and free practice of creativity, play, and human engagement. WASH also serves as a human services hub for the immediate Burmese community and beyond: a neighborhood access point for information regarding a wide range of community services and cultural opportunities. From this effort, we continue to cultivate the development of a small, yet dynamic center of local community life, a place that people of all ages and walks of life come to; a place, that by the way it is designed & the way it is operated, strengthens its neighborhood, collaboratively, via a model of creativity & open engagement. The Wash Project is Located at 593 Grant St. Buffalo, New York.
Here there and EVERYwhere (htE) is a nonprofit, repurposed goods platform that provides survivors of economic hardships, domestic abuse, sexual assault, and human trafficking with an avenue for creative expression. While incorporating art therapy and ethical design concepts, survivors are taught vocational and entrepreneurial skills in sewing, jewelry making, and crafts to bring new life to discarded items. The end product is a culmination of creativity, catharsis, and dedication, which is shared through htE's donation tracking system, the htE Dove.
