Madder Red by Dalya Islam has been instrumental in formulating, organizing and implementing a series of arts therapy workshops for children in deprived areas of the city of Jeddah. A ground-breaking initiative for the country.
Madder Red by Dalya Islam, Saa’id, the CSR department of Tamer Group and the Adult and Child Therapy Centre in Jeddah, will realize its collaboration of passion, funding and knowledge with its first series of workshops in November 2013 in a day of immersive and experiential arts projects intended to contribute to emotional and psychological healing and provide an alternative outlet to expression.
Art Therapy is based on the belief that the creative process involved in artistic self-expression helps people to resolve conflicts and problems, develop interpersonal skills, manage behaviour, reduce stress, increase self-esteem and achieve insight.
Our intention is to improve the mental and emotional health of these children whilst increasing their self-awareness and cognitive abilities, benefiting them and the community as a whole.
