“Art empowers instead of hiding, and increases the possibility of self-awareness and self-understanding, especially in an era of alienation and continuous crises…”
The FEARTY team visited l’Altre Festival 2023 and discovered, among other things, how dance can help us to recover different kinds of mental health problems in our lives. Together with more than 50 youngsters they participated on the workshop related to collective mental health. The workshop was held by the Ukrainian psychologist from the Association Djerelo and Yana Reutova, professional dancer from Ukraine who found her new sheltered home in Prague (the Czech Republic).
“This festival was a great way to see how informality and casualness can work well in gathering people of all kinds in a space that provides safety, respect, diversity and a lot of fun. Definitely a useful event to keep in mind on how to approach art, mental health and youth.”
