Why is the course free?

The Pandemic that's Why

For the past year the course has been taught in South Auckland and Wellington New Zealand by Mandi Lynn, a past winner of New Zealand's Creative Photographer of the Year.  We were in the middle of classes when the Pandemic hit and the girls in the course were coping with a large range of emotions about it all and were finding the course was helping them to process it all.  So instead of shutting it down Mandi figured out a way to keep the course going online for the girls.

After that, it was a no brainer to take the content and make a free version available to kids all over New Zealand and all over the world for that matter.

 

Mandi is the Founder and Director of Every Body is a Treasure Trust.  A trust set up to use Artivism as a tool to help develop deep pools of self-compassion and creative resilience in communities in New Zealand.

 

Funding to facilitate the course this year has come from the below generous sponsors of the Trust's work.
