In this period of restirections linked to the spread of Covid-19, the Loom of the Arts team is also working hard to transmit support to people, tools for remote support and listening through the tools that have always characterized us: art therapy as a possibility of healing the spirit, the mind and also the body, which have never before taken on even more importance and importance, also in strengthening and intensifying support and care even in the physical distance.
Our activities have been transformed, as for many, without interrupting the thread of the relationship but reinforcing it: in fact, our intent was precisely to intensify it: in this regard, we would like to point out some of our interventions / activities, to which several professional figures-collaborators of the Loom of the Arts are participating:
GROUP INTERVENTIONS of dance therapy, art therapy and music therapy with disabilities and psychiatry and the women and children of the San Siro district have resumed, and we are evaluating the possibility of creating groups also for children (a slightly more fragile and neglected band recent provisions). Thanks to a connection work with the Sansheroes network of which we are part, it is possible to convey any needs that go beyond our intervention (e.g. deliveries of food parcels, school support, etc …)
The ETCI container was born! … IT IS CREATED https://www.facebook.com/events/191736522131049/ , in continuous evolution: the project was created to support and support the women and children of the San Siro district with whom we mainly interact, but it wants to be a virtual container open to all in which various contributions are inserted / hosted (NARRATIONS, MUSIC, PRAYERS, POETRY, SONGS). Over time, the container has taken on international characteristics, in fact contributions are coming from Spain, and shortly a link will be created with South Africa (where an information page of various types has been created by a group of psychologists on health-related information, psychological). Of course, everyone can make their contribution (very nice proposals have been received from the neighborhood children, who have made touching jobs despite the few means available). For those without Facebook, a youtube channel of the Loom of the Arts has also been recently created https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCXy-mEMx_T3_PNmtcX3xxYA?view_as=subscriber where you will find the same contents as the facebook page.
A project will start shortly in collaboration with CAMERA FILM (NAPLES-TURIN), a cultural association that deals with enhancing art in its most varied expressive forms, giving particular importance to cinema. From precinema to stop motion, from film to digital. The goal is to create a short film short involving children, even those who do not have technological equipment (a more simplified ad hoc intervention has been designed for the latter). The content of the short will deal with the house lived as a house-treasure, in which everyone will be able to identify and narrate their own object-treasure: a representative-evocative-containing object with sometimes transitional value (especially in this psychologically regressive phase for many children who see themselves overturned the certainties, the anchors of life). The project was born in collaboration with the Recipe QuBì Selinunte (Cariplo Foundation) against child poverty.
We are planning ad hoc interventions designed for companies, schools, to help support this long period of psychological fragility that will undoubtedly have many repercussions both in the personal sphere and in the social and work sphere. The interrelational, intrarelational aspects as well as those concerning the integrity of the person (from the Latin integer = intact, not broken, healthy) will inevitably be altered, therefore we will work on the recovery and reconstitution of what is the person’s psychophysical integrity
