“Iridescence-Hope Through Art” is a nonprofit organisation that teaches art to less fortunate and marginalised children in Sri lanka. They use art to capture the imagination of children, to empower them, building confidence, self-esteem and hope. They promote their visions and voices with the world through exhibitions, magazines, short movies and websites. By linking with local organisations, they work to strengthen the children’s education and general well being, providing financial support through sales of their art or by developing their own project with a focus on leadership, and the arts. Iridescence believe that art is an effective tool in igniting children’s imagination and building self-esteem. They believe in the power of art to transform lives, for both the artist and the viewer.
