Hurricane Sandy Art Relief: An Interview with Elana Haviv

As some of you know, in addition to producing my own podcast, The Big Vision Podcast, I also produce the Arts and Healing Network's Podcast, where I recently interviewed Elana Haviv, the Founder and Executive Director of the Children's Movement for Creative Education (CMCE) about their Hurricane Sandy Art Relief Caravan Project which was featured in The Huffington Post article, Art Heals Heartache for Sandy Kids.

CMCE creates academic and artistic programs to help children and youth understand and overcome violent world events. Elana designed The Telling History Project: Understanding the Past to Create the Future, a curriculum to teach students about human rights. After 9/11, she spearheaded an art-based CMCE 9/11 Trauma Relief Project in the New York City schools. She also pioneered art-based healing programs in post-war Bosnia.

You can listen to the interview on the Arts and Healing Network's website, or on the player (below). Enjoy!
