Plans and Goals

Arts for Life Int\'l is in the process of registering as a Faith based organization in the United States. However, in order to continue education and research both coordinators will be located in Australia for two-three years.

During this time Arts for Life plans to expand its support base, develop resources that are needed in the former USSR and Eastern Europe, and maintain relationships already developed in Belarus and Romania.

Eventually Arts for Life hopes to expand into other communities in crisis around the globe. Arts for Life hopes to expand their training seminars by including practical resources for workers to include in helping children who have survived trauma and/or crisis.
