About this event
The Barefoot Artist chronicles the colourful life of Lily Yeh, a community-based artist in some of the world’s most troubled areas.
We see Yeh’s long-term creation of a sculpture garden project in North Philadelphia, and working in other locations, how she teaches survivors of war and calamity to make murals and sculptures drawn from their own experience.
Through art, people regain hope, a sense of purpose, and a belief that life can be about creation as well as destruction.
Recognising that creativity and beauty are powerful agents for healing, self-empowerment and change, Lily Yeh founded Barefoot Artists in 2002. Through their methodology on community building and economic development through art, they train and empower local residents (in locations including Rwanda, Kenya, Ghana, Ecuador, and China) to organise their communities and take action for a more compassionate, just, and sustainable future.
The Barn Cinema is delighted to support the Transition Film Festival, now in its fourth year. The Festival shows films on a range of issues important to Transition – including climate change, food production, declining resources and the value of community – with an emphasis on films that have not seen a wide release.
