We are very happy that SoulPaint, a project that we are contributing to, was awarded the Unity for Humanity Grant.
A quote from our partner Sarah Ticho:
We are utterly over to the moon to be selected as one of the winners of the Unity for Humanity grant 2023. This grant recognises the deep need and relevance of Soulpaint as a tool to explore our inner emotional worlds, and help people find ways to express their experiences when words are not enough. This is an incredible opportunity to enable us to deepen our research with both our artistic and scientific collaborators. We will be launching the experience as an international touring exhibition, before bringing it into healthcare and wellbeing contexts.
Congratulations to our fellow award winners, and a huge thank you to Paisley Smith and the Unity for Humanity team for your support. We can’t wait to bring Soulpaint into the world!
