OUR PROJECTS

WE ARE NOW A PART OF PAKISTAN MENTAL HEALTH COALITION

Centre for Arts-based Methodologies & Wellbeing is now

a part of Pakistan Mental Health Coalition. On September 

30th, we partook in the first general body meeting to 

discuss ideas around mental health, it's accessibility,

the resources we can provide as a Centre and in the process, made some new friends. 

پیار کی باتیں | LIBRARY OF PEACE

We are collaborating with HIVE Pakistan under the Simurg Grant to initiate an arts-based community engagement in Karachi with children and adolescents of the age 5 to 15 years (both school-going and out-of-school). Together, we will create a “Library of Peace | پیار کی باتیں” that will house zines (self-publications) exploring the theme of peace, harmony and co-existence.

PSYCHOSOCIAL FIRST AID AND CHILD PROTECTION

TO RESPONSE COVID-19 PANDEMIC

In partnership with the Ministry of Health, Sindh and Unicef, we worked with a multi-sectoral community including individuals from the social welfare department and local NGOs to train the trainers for mental health and child protection concerns as a response to COVID-19 through a designed manual and workbook. We created art with them to understand what it means to be a child and what is health really so we can envision a safer world for our children moving forward.
