The National Foundation for the Promotion of Happiness (abbreviated “Happiness”) is a multicultural, not-for-profit network of artists, play writers, actors, musicians and volunteers who invest in children and teenagers in asylum-seekers centers. Happiness organizes creative activities on a regular basis in 30 asylum-seekers centers in the Netherlands.
Creativity provides space. Art challenges, but doesn’t force. For children and teenagers it is of great importance to be able to demonstrate during their development who they are and who they can be. This can be done through music, sculpture, theatre, play and game, in brief, during creative activities.
