Integration support – empowerment and connection by creative and therapeutic activities
CREA THERA was founded by the Bruges music therapist Thomas Deleu and is active in the region of Srebrenica in Bosnia and Herzegovina since 2007.
Children, young people and adults from this heavily traumatized community may take part in regular creative activities, especially music and art therapeutic workshops.
BEATS, WORDS & MOVES
Since November 2017, the integration support project BEATS, WORDS & MOVES has been running in a cooperation agreement with the province of West Flanders. In 2 reception centers, 3 primary schools and 2 secondary schools (with OKAN classes) there were 14-day workshops held for preschool children, primary school children, unaccompanied minors, young women and adults. As much as possible in mixed groups: people from here and newcomers. The focus was mainly on empowerment and connection.
At the end of 2016, Crea Thera started working in various refugee reception centers in Belgium. In 2017, an impulse subsidy came from the province of West Flanders to offer music therapeutic workshops in 2 refugee reception centers and a community house. In OC Poelkapelle, in community house for minors Estas and in OC Wingene. The project was named MUSIC HOME.
