START uniquely encourages international artists to become volunteers in the field of humanitarian aid and education by participating in their workshops.
Why and who should participate?
Give back to the community, be inspired, develop your skills and join an elite group of international START artists.
START welcomes all artists of different art forms and nationalities that are passionate about children.
How to participate?
- Volunteer in any of our workshops across Jordan, Lebanon, Palestine, India and the UAE.
- We run 10 workshops every week in the orphanages, special needs centers and refugee camps.
- Our START manager will prepare the workshop supplies and support each artist to conceptualise an interactive workshop for the children.
- The Jordan Artist Programme provides complimentary accommodation in the ‘START House’ and in exchange we ask each artist to volunteer their time in 5 START workshops per week.
The ‘START House’ is open all year round and we welcome applications on a rolling basis.
