In this episode, Abby Hungwe, Managing Director of Owl and Panther, talks about the mission and her history with the group. Fresh from Zimbabwe, Abby joined as an asylum seeker in her early twenties. Alone in an unfamiliar country, Owl and Panther gave her the kindness and support that helped her find her strength. Abby speaks about the unique value of art practice as therapy in the lives of refugee children.
Owl and Panther provides meaningful, healing expressive arts experiences for refugee families resettled in Tucson who have been impacted by trauma, torture and traumatic dislocation. They are always looking for volunteers to help make this essential work happen! Visit Owl and Panther’s website for more information.
