The Draw Your Dreams project encourages children in Africa to use art to envision better days ahead and set professional goals. Recently, the concept was also introduced to 450 youngsters in the United States. This past Saturday, their work was put on display in a first-ever exhibit and workshop at the Galveston Arts Center, a leading center of contemporary art in Southeast Texas. “Art is a great motivator and teaches problem-solving,” says project coordinator Linda Ercole-Musso. “We’ve learned a great deal from our African colleagues and we intend to make use of that knowledge by extending Draw Your Dreams to even more local children.” Meanwhile, the project continues to expand in Africa. “Our intention is to extend the benefits of Draw Your Dreams to several thousand more children in the year ahead,” says Dinesh Doshi, the project’s founder. Since 2017, Draw Your Dreams has served 4,000 children in Kenya, Tanzania and South Africa and may soon be extended to Ethiopia and Swaziland.
