Laurence Vandenborre
Biography
Laurence is the Founder and Managing Director of “The Red Pencil”, an International Arts Therapy Humanitarian Foundation whose mission is to bring the benefits of arts therapy to children, adults and families on their pathway to recovery and well-being, with a particular attention to those facing overwhelming situations for which they have no words, yet whose sufferings need attention, expression, relief, release and ultimately healing. Those situations include natural disasters and conflict zones, long-term hospitalizations, abuse and violence (more details on www.redpencil.org). Currently, The Red Pencil has four formal entities: Singapore (a registered charity, governed by the Ministry of Social and Family Development, as well as an Institution of Public Character), Geneva (a Swiss association with an Institution of Public Character status) overlooking our International Operations, Dubai (a registered Not-for-Profit organization with the International Humanitarian City) to cover the Middle East, and Brussels (a Foundation of Public Utility) to cover our operations in Europe.
