Actual project on Sinai with children of Bedouins
Garda Alexander developed a relationship with Bedouins during her stays on Sinai. These natives have a strong relationship with nature and environment. Tourism confronts the Bedouins and their children with the modern western world.
Child & Art organises together with the natives art workshops at their homes. Local women accompany the children. Child & Art wishes to offer the possibility to the children to play freely with materials, colours and forms, thus strengthen them in their cultural identity and give them the possibility to live their creativity. The art projects lay the basis for an intercultural exchange through the participation of children from different origins.
