Description of charity's activities and outcomes
Our Purpose - A Not-for-Profit organization, The Art Cabriolet (AC) provides multiple platforms for art expression and experience that target remedial outcomes for children in trauma or living in challenging conditions. AC uses art in all its mediums and forums to emotionally strengthen children dealing with physical or psychological distress resulting from any type and level of trauma. Repetitive multiple forums of art are made available and accessible for remedial outcomes in children we work with. We custom design art programs in conjunction with health carers, social workers, psychologists, teachers and even parents. Our primary goal is to produce safe, creative and fun environments that divert and distract children whilst implementing educative and restorative art programs. The primary outcome is to nurture mental health, general well-being, increase self-esteem and self-empowerment. AC has artists, art therapists, play therapists and volunteers to implement art programs. Art strengthens childrens mindset and emotions. AC provides and supplies all equipment and materials necessary for the production of art in all mediums. The art programs are profiled to suit childrens circumstances so that relief and release from physical, emotional and/or psychological suffering and distress can be harnessed and encouraged. We currently have ongoing programs running with partnered organisation such as, Monash Children's Cancer Centre - Art in Residence Program, Very Special Kids - EOL, - Holiday Program.
