The Butterfly Art Project is a group of artists, facilitators, local staff and volunteers from around the world who offer psychological and social support to traumatized children and youth from disadvantaged communities. The team met with the Executive Director to discuss a variety of challenges including staff inefficiency, conflict, and cultural differences.

Our intervention surfaced deeper dynamics related to trust in various expressions. We worked with sub-groups on knowledge transfer, communication, feedback-feed forward opportunities. Reconvening as a whole saw a dramatic shift in tone and energy for the group.
