Creative Arts used in course facilitation with the Yeboneers group in the Koue-Bokkeveld

April 2023

In April the Year Beyond (Yeboneers) group from the Witzenberg District, gathered at Kaleo Guest Farm in the Koue-Bokkeveld to attend the Arts for Psychological Support workshop facilitated by service provider Spieƫl Arts Therapies Collective. It is always a very intense, fun, colourful, and fully immersive experience for attendees with overwhelmingly positive feedback. It is indeed a powerful medium for course facilitation and deep impact on attendees.

We’ve received feedback from the participants and facilitators about the impact of this workshop. This is normally included in a report and used to inform follow up programmes and to improve the workshop to maximum benefit for all involved. As implementing partner of the Year Beyond programme and specifically in support of the group in the Witzenberg, we're excited to see the growth in these young people during the course of the year. Thank you to our service providers and partners as well as our Waitrose Foundation Regional Coordinator, Eleanor Louw, for supporting this group with such enthusiasm and care.
