Here in Scotland Spring has arrived and with it for us very good news to set us up for the year. We have been awarded a grant by the Scottish Government Small Grant scheme to consolidate the work in Zambia this year. We couldn't be more pleased and at our AGM yesterday confirmed the plans for the next 12 months.
We have heard from the three trainee trainers in Lusaka and they have been working on the training materials to ensure they are contextually relevant. This work will be continued with Lesley when she goes out at the end of May to do the groundwork for our cooperation with SCHEME and for the ZTA Course delivery in other Provinces which is due to take place in September and October.
Here we are continuing to spread the word about the training and share what we have learnt from the responses of trainees and patients that we think is really important learning for the use of art in health contexts and the practice of Art Therapy.
Anyway we are all very optimistic about the work though a bit overwhelmed about all there is to do- very exciting!
