Where we Play to Heal

Our Vision

We envision individuals and communities acting as agents of their own well-being through sports and expressive arts.

Our Mission

Our mission is to catalyze the power of sports and expressive arts-based resources to create opportunities for individual and community well-being. Using a strengths-based approach, we partner with individuals, groups, and organizations to lead change efforts in their context building upon existing resources and skills. 

We fulfill our mission by increasing the access to play through creating safe spaces within communities which becomes a place for people to build connection in order to restore cultural bindings, enhance creative capacities, and renew hope; capacities that are foundational for healing and sustainable peace. We believe that well-being is a collective necessity and not just an individual choice. Therefore, we promote a posture of mutual learning through our online collaborative platform valuing the belief that what is created together can be shared generously with others in common spaces for research, mutual learning, and collaboration with fellow professionals and practitioners.
