Turner Contemporary, Stour Valley Arts and Canterbury City Council’s Museums and Galleries Service collaborated on a training and research project exploring how artists can work with disadvantaged children and young people facing challenges in their lives.
In March 2010 selected artists were given two days training where they explored neuro-chemistry, working with challenging behaviour and the role of arts in processing trauma.
We were delighted that artists and a psychologist from Kids Company (an organisation that provides practical, emotional and educational support to vulnerable inner-city children that are at risk) could lead some of the training, sharing their learning and expertise in how art can help children cope with trauma.
Colleagues from Local Children Services Partnerships attended the training too, ensuring that we develop partnership projects that address the real needs of children in Thanet, Canterbury and Ashford.
