Chosen Hands takes its healing through art programme to Tobago /

Some 25 peo­ple had their lives trans­formed by an art and well­ness work­shop ti­tled, «From Bro­ken to Beau­ti­ful II», which was held at the pic­turesque Waves Restau­rant and Bar in Black Rock, To­ba­go, on Sat­ur­day 21 May 2022. 

The event was the re­sult of Cho­sen Hands Art and Well­ness NGO team­ing up with Women of Sub­stance and Trinit­i­ca In­ter­na­tion­al, to bring its heal­ing through art pro­gramme to To­ba­go.

The work­shop host­ed sur­vivors of do­mes­tic vi­o­lence, health care pro­fes­sion­als, so­cial work­ers, of­fi­cials from youth and women groups and mi­grants from the Latin Amer­i­can com­mu­ni­ty based in To­ba­go.  

A re­lease from Cho­sen Hands ex­plains this re­cent ini­tia­tive—the brain­child of Ani­ka Plow­den-Corentin, the NGO’s cre­ative di­rec­tor—marks the third in­stal­ment in the se­ries of gen­der pos­i­tive ini­tia­tives by Cho­sen Hands to sup­port, em­pow­er and in­spire vul­ner­a­ble groups.
