The Art-Therapy Foundation was created in Geneva, Switzerland on 31 July 2008 as a non-profit utility organization recognized as such by Decree from the Council of State of the Canton of Geneva. The Foundation’s objective is to support art- and musicotherapy programs to facilitate the recovery of children, infants and young adults suffering from serious illness, who are hospitalized in Basel, Berne, Geneva, Lausanne, Lugano, St. Gallen, Winterthur and Zurich. The Foundation examines and reacts to every request from hospital centers wishing to integrate these programs.
The Art-Therapy Foundation wishes to provide access to art- and musicotherapy to as many injured, ill and hospitalized children as possible, in order to contribute to their recovery. This way the Foundation joins in the intentions of Uno’s International Convention on the Rights of the Child by ensuring the necessary health care for the well-being of children.
