Oyo Projects – social Arts e.V

Oyo Projects – Social Art e.V. is an association of artists, activists and other committed people. They share the wish to support street kids and young adults by engaging them in artistic and creative activities. The project follows the concept of the “social sculpture”, an artistic category based on the extended art term by Joseph Beuys. Every human being is an artist – and kids especially can strengthen their self-confidence, learn how to deal with their emotions and overcome traumata by exploring their artistic skills. These experiences enhance their resiliency and prepare them for their future life. Oyo Projects is rising awareness and encouraging discussion about the street kids’ precarious situation through public exhibitions, street art and interventions. For all participating kids, Oyo provides meals, medicine and primary health care, and most of all offers a reliable contact person who takes their problems seriously.
