DrawingOut used with victims of violent conflict in Myanmar

April 17, 2020

DrawingOut has been used to capture the experiences of ordinary women and men living amidst violent conflict in Kachin state, Myanmar. A team of artists and activists from Myanmar, and academics from the UK and USA, worked with local participants living in camps for internally displaced persons.

Over three days, the workshop participants created drawings about their experiences of violent conflict and their hopes for a more peaceful future. A deeply moving booklet using some of their words and drawings can be downloaded here.
