ARTogether is a community-building creative arts project, guided by the
principle that art can serve as a means of expression that transcends
language and culture, while it lays a foundation for managing and
overcoming trauma. ARTogether facilitate social gathering, family picnics,
and other social activities to raise awareness about refugee situation and
also to make connection between the refugee community and the general
public. ARTogether forms partnerships with artists and refugee
organizations in the Bay Area , to develop and host regular free creative
arts workshops that are 90 minutes to two hours in duration. ARTogether
designs one-time workshops as well as ongoing regular series. Workshop
themes cover a broad range of media and purpose. Activities take place
onsite or at the partner refugee organization’s facility, and wherever
