The Rwanda Healing Project: Bringing Hope through Art and Creative Action

Lily Yeh, an internationally celebrated artist, works to bring the transformative power of art to impoverished and war-torn communities around the world to foster community empowerment, improve the physical environment, promote economic development and preserve indigenous art and culture. She portrays a heart-breakingly beautiful project (described in Terry Tempest Williams' latest book Finding Beauty in a Broken World) exemplifying how art can begin to heal the environment as well as the hearts and minds of the traumatized people.
