About Art Bridges

Art Bridges is a volunteer-based organisation offering psycho-social support through a creative intercultural platform for refugee children and young adults through music and art education. Our mission is to promote the social inclusion and integration of refugee or migrant children and young adults into their new communities.

We believe a musical and artistic foundation not only inspires and heals but also helps our beneficiaries to strive for a better future. It provides a platform for inter-cultural dialogue, teaching them to set aside their differences and work together for a shared goal.

Active on Lesvos since January 2016, our ART Angels Relief Team of talented staff and volunteers carry out activities ranging from violin and classical instrument training to dance and crafts and other activities. We work with children, young adults and families and also run women's empowerment programs. We initially worked in the Kara Tepe camp, and in 2017 we began to offer our services in the Moria camp.

We were invited to present our project at the European Parliament's Conference on Refugee Children in December 2016.

We operate in other camps across Greece, offering workshops and services where they are needed the most (Thermopylae Camp, Lamia). We track our students and offer them our Education Program when they are transferred to the Attika area or other regions.

Plans for 2018

From January 2018 we will be offering Creative Learning workshops for unaccompanied minors, families and children in Moria. We will also continue to work with the residents of Kara Tepe.

About us

Matching needs and offers.

Asterias-Starfish Foundation being on the refugees' crisis field for a long time, came face to face with emergency needs, lack of information and communication. Even now, when the flow is not so big, actually nobody knows the needs of the others. So many times, items are remaining in warehouses and refugees still need them. On the other hand, donors want to offer their help in this refugee crisis, but they cannot find where to channel this help.

We are launching this platform to help us to work more efficiently.  To let every organization have a clear view of the needs on the island of Lesvos. To give them access to funding when they haven't any, and give to the donors the full information they need, when they want to offer their help.

Let's work together, to cover the needs of this humanitarian crisis, through a transparent platform.
