Zurich Chapter

Developed by Zurich-based artist and teacher Shima Sheikholeslami, ARTogether’s Zurich chapter is an exciting start to our Global Communities initiative. Shima holds arts classes at the Zurich Refugee Camp, which houses “stateless” refugees who will eventually be required to leave Switzerland. The camp occasionally hosts volunteer-lead projects, yet Shima aims to establish routine ARTogether classes as a way to enable refugees with a reliable means to create art amidst their unstable conditions. Camp children have already created freestyle projects, potato-stamped designs, and more! Below are the workshop galleries, which highlight ARTogether’s first steps in expanding its mission globally.
