The creative enrichment program was coordinated and led by Keisha Oliver and facilitated by a team of creative professionals living in The Bahamas. It offered a series of art therapy and creative enrichment sessions specifically for the children living in the home. The curriculum was designed to engage at-risk youth through individual and collaborative arts activities that focused on three areas: Art Therapy (Literary & Performance Arts and Visual Arts), Creative Entrepreneurship (Bahamian Traditions and Bahamian Innovation) and Arts Advocacy (Beach Cleanup and Upcycled Art).
