Since 2006, Wspolna Droga – United Way Poland has implemented Nikifors, a program dedicated to empowering adults living with disabilities through art. Nikifors provides an opportunity for these individuals to interact with others and to create artwork that is representative of their hopes, dreams, and joys. Partnering with the Art Workshop Centers, over 100 individuals have been invited to participate in a national competition. Wspolna Droga – United Way Poland has organized conferences, distributed holiday cards based on the artists’ works, and promoted art therapy as a means of socializing the participants and increasing their confidence.
