reach-ing in & out

explore the process of seeking & offering support

programme brief

 

reach-ing in & out is a short-term experiential learning programme where we explore the process of seeking & offering support. 

 

sometimes, in the face of difficulties and challenges, we all come to a point where we may require some form of support. at this stage we may sometimes choose to reach-in - use our own internal resources to cope/ manage our challenges. sometimes, we may come to the realization that reach-ing in may not offer the kind of support we are looking for, in which case — we may reach-out, or turn to people and external resources, or use a combination of reach-ing in and reach-ing out.

 

this programme aims to explore the care space & dive into the important roles we play as both support seekers and support providers, enabling us to identify & articulate our feelings, strengthen our resources, build a strong symbiotic support system & to care for ourselves and others when they need it.  art based activities are used as a medium of expression throughout the programme.
