Our Mission

Kaleido Arts for Wellbeing uses creative arts to bring wellbeing to people suffering because of war, discrimination, abuse and loss. We recognise that trauma and mental health issues affect people from all walks of life, and we believe everyone should have the opportunity to experience freedom and joy through creativity.
