Florence Robichon

A Brighter Future: Creativity and Learning in a Syrian Refugee Camp in Iraqi Kurdistan

Palo Alto Art Center
1313 Newell Rd.
Palo Alto, California

This exhibition presents the mural project of the Arbat refugee camp in Iraq, led by Palo Alto, Calif.-based artist, Florence Robichon. In 2014, Florence moved to Kurdistan, Iraq. Since then,  she volunteered her time to embark the younger generation of the Arbat camp on a journey of self-discovery and healing through art. Today, more than 50 colorful, happy murals liven up the dull cinder block facades of the camp’s streets. Florence’s story is a strong testimony that, even in a desperate situation, art has a powerful impact on people’s lives.
