What It’s Like To…Be an Art Therapist in Egypt

Amany Shenouda combines her love for art and her desire to help people in her trauma-sensitive group workshops, bringing together communities who fled war to seek shelter in Cairo. In her workshops, she weaves together visual arts, movement, and theater to create trauma-sensitive programs designed to foster healing and emotional regulation. Shenouda, who transitioned from a career in biochemistry and communications, now uses art therapy to support people in processing their trauma and finding hope. Her programs have included participants from various nationalities, including Sudan, Eritrea, Syria, and Palestine, promoting integration and community building. Shenouda's work highlights the power of art to connect, heal, and inspire individuals across different backgrounds.
