The “Trauma Healing and Creative Arts Coalition” is committed to people who have been weakened by war, migration or violence.

More and more people have traumatic experiences, especially children and adolescents.

They need access to methods that motivate and empower them in their personal development. To regain a self-directed, life-affirming attitude again.

THAC advocates that trauma affected people get more direct acces to support on their demanding journey. This path is our goal.

The three focus topics of THAC

IMG_1059> Promote creative approaches and innovative methods of trauma recovery – and to make them widely accessible; so that more people with traumatic experiences get support.

-> Building projects and networks with new technologies and creative art approaches; in the field of peace-building, reconciliation, trauma care and to strengthen resilience.

-> Promote partnerships and programs for recovering from traumatic experiences in the domain of migration, in post-conflict zones and fragile contexts.
