Activity

The Albert Schweitzer Hospital in Lambaréné hosts regular expressive art workshops run by two visual artists and art therapists that are open to all: hospitalised children, psychiatric patients, young people living in the neighbourhood, health workers. Participants are able to create freely and the drawing, painting, plastic arts and drama activities also provide a vehicle for addressing the issue of HIV/AIDS.

In 2012 Fondation Alta Mane supported the expressive art and drama workshops addressing HIV/AIDS prevention and treatment with the children.
