International Women’s Day
March 8, 2019
Every year on March 8th, events are held to commemorate International Women’s Day, a global event that celebrates the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women around the world.
Artolution plays an on-going role in positively impacting women who suffer from gender marginalization or trauma due to conflicts or displacement in their home communities. Each year for International Women’s Day, Artolution team members reflect on the community art projects that were built to help women in difficult situations by providing them with an outlet to help them heal and safely integrate further within their communities.
World Refugee Day

On June 20, 2019 Artolution celebrates the journeys of these brave individuals who have faced difficult obstacles to arrive in a safer location.
Through the launch of Artolution’s projects, over ___ people have been inspired by hope and granted an outlet to help them overcome the trauma associated with the journey to find a new home and integrate into a new community.
