The Mask Project

The Mask Project 2012 – A joint project with Graham Godden from Youth Empowerment Services (YES+).

We encouraged some of the adults at Kalinovka to design their own masks and enjoy a few moments of creativity, breaking the monotony of their daily routine. The adults at Kalinovka have no activities or facilities for exercise or entertainment except one TV in a cage on a wall in their “living room”. This television is constantly blasting crackly noises and broken images into the room which has nothing else in it except wooden benches down each wall. Most of the men sit on the hard floor and rock to alleviate their boredom and stress.
