GEM is a community development organisation, using Arts and Culture to inspire youth towards creativity and health. It achieves this by hosting in-person and online free educational arts and health workshops. These provide coaching support, community engagement, and offer ‘Art-for-Purpose’ opportunities to mobilise young people to stay at their creative passion!
what GEM stands for
GEM stands for Giving Emotions Meaning. How does GEM do this? When a young person is taught to become aware of their feelings and inherited beliefs, they can improve their emotional literacy and are more equipped to redirect these states into something creative. In turn, most ‘Gems’ then become more engaged in society, and stay inspired!
How GEM CONNECTS YOUTH
GEM connects young people to a vibrant community of like-minded and hearted individuals. We do this through sharing lived experience, providing educational content, and offering creative opportunities – such as running various ‘Art-for-Purpose’ events!
