Is art a therapy? From my experience I can say it isn’t. Nevertheless, it does help communication processes, it relaxes the patients, it invites them to evade and also it helps them to meet their inner selves.
One fact that strikes me about the non-profit sector is the little relevance (initially!) that is given to money. A group of people identify a social need and starts doing things. At a given time, they suddenly realise that to carry out all they have planned they need… money!
