Catalogue from art therapy for young people
Onlineprinters has continued its support of Refugio, a non-profit counselling and treatment centre for traumatised refugees, by donating EUR 5,000 this year. Along with the donation, Onlineprinters printed exhibition catalogues of project pictures made in art therapy class.
The catalogue highlights the healing effect of art to process traumatic experiences. This makes the catalogue a valuable tool for Refugio to support their public relations and as a gift to donors and sponsors. The centre offers various services to help young refugees find their way back to a normal life after suffering traumatic experiences.
"On the move" exhibition catalogue
The art workshop of Refugio exhibits pictures from refugee children about being on the move and has issued an accompanying exhibition catalogue. Margit Papamokos, who founded the art workshop 25 years ago, emphasises the importance of artistic expression: "Art is a very effective means to communicate with children and adolescents who fled their home, non-verbally at first allowing language barriers to be overcome." In the next step, they talk about the pictures which promotes language. Throughout the artistic process, the children have an experienced art therapist of the association at their side.
Migration resolution signed
The online print shop has been supporting Refugio for several years now. "Onlineprinters employs people from more than 20 nations including refugees. Refugio makes an important contribution to integrating them. And companies such as ours benefit from these efforts as well," points out Michael Fries, the CEO of Onlineprinters. Back in November, Onlineprinters signed a resolution calling for politicians to step up their efforts to integrate refugees.
The adhesive bound exhibition catalogue has 76 pages. 800 copies were printed on FSC certified paper.
