(B.A., M.A (Art Therapy), AThR)
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.
Here is the latest short video about our humanitarian mission: The Red Pencil 2018 – The Power of
Arts Therapy. This other video is a testimony through the doctors who support our work: The Red
Pencil Humanitarian Mission – When we rescue the child, we save the adult.
