When the Butterfly Effect launched the BeCause Movement, brave and inquiring souls also came together to use art process as a means of exploring their personal story, and experiencing the way art can healthily shift how the story is felt and told.
Experienced in the context of personal life
journey, art practice enables the individual to create new connections between situations, mental responses, and behaviours. As such, by encouraging art practice in response to life’s challenges, therapists repeatedly see a shift in client's feelings from “uncertainty”, “insecurity”, “vulnerability”, “lost”, “isolation” and “shame, to the creation of new mental responses and behaviours centered on “perseverance”, “clarity”. “appreciation”, “connection”, “commitment” and “empowerment”.
In 2020, BeCause will be launching two new campaigns focused on the sharing of art's medicinal benefits globally.
BeCAUSE...BUTTERFLY STORIES - invites communities from around the world, to create their own butterfly mural (from small to large in size) and share their process and outcomes.
BeCAUSE...CONVERSATIONS IN ART - creates the space for individuals and communities to explore, and most importantly share, how art process has created a new meaning of their life stories - past, present and beyond.
