The story

Affirmative Art team in Uganda

 

 

 

 

Affirmative Art began in Africa. In 2012 we realized art could be a powerful tool for identifying goals and visions in life.
If we visually define our purpose in life, we bring it closer and make it more real.
 
Eirik Jarl Trondsen was living in Africa at the time, and saw that Affirmative Art could be a powerful tool for development, as art is a universal language, which does not require literacy, and is cheap and available to all.
 
The initial process of identifying one's vision or purpose is an eye opener, as many people have not had the opportunity to think about what they want to get out of life. 
  
Later we realized that Affirmative Art needed to be supported by concrete actions. There needs to be a correlation between the vision, 
as defined through Affirmative Art, and taking action.
