The group is led by an art therapist and a psychologist. Parallel to this course, a stabilizing parents‘ group takes place.

Parents with war and refugee experiences are often worried about their children and have to deal with stress and strain themselves. The participants receive information about frequently experienced reactions after extraordinary stresses and get suggestions on how to cope well with the current challenges. Parallel to this group, the art therapy group for children takes place.

Registration possible at any time, language: Russian. Location: Franziskanerstr. 14 in Munich.



Volunteers as well as full-time helpers of the Ukrainian and Russian speaking community have been over-committed in the last weeks and have often gone beyond their own limits. In this regard, some have already noticed overload reactions in themselves. In addition, listeners are at risk of developing symptoms of trauma sequelae themselves as a result of recounting traumatic events. In this course, participants will be informed about possible reactions and signs of overload and will receive suggestions on how to deal with complaints in order to prevent burnout.

Registrations are accepted at any time, language: Ukrainian/Russian. Location: Franziskanerstr. 14 in Munich.
Next group start November 16th 2023



Many people have a special access to dance. Thoughts and feelings can be expressed in movement, but there is also room for fun and shared joy. The dance group aims to (re)discover one’s own resources.  The course is led by a psychologist.

For women aged 16 and over. We accept registrations, but no group start is planned in the near future (as of March 8th, 2023), which is why waiting time for a group start must be expected / it is unclear whether this will take place.



The war posed and still poses great challenges to many young people. With the loss of their homeland, many plans and goals no longer seem attainable. Guided by a psychologist, the young people are to experience through creative activity (collage technique) how they can find resources and new meaning in traumatic experiences and use them for their further path.

The Refugio Art Workshop

The Refugio Art Workshop Refugio Kunstwerkstatt offers regular groups in some shelters for refugee children from Ukraine. The groups are meant to be a place of rest and arrival.  Creative work is done with different materials and techniques. In addition, we offer art workshops for Ukrainian children in our own rooms in the Art Lab2 every Monday from 1 to 4 p.m. and every Tuesday from 12 to 3 p.m. in cooperation with the Ukrainian Cultural Center Gorod. The children have the opportunity to express themselves creatively, for example by painting or handicrafts. In the meantime, the parents can get into contact with each other in a relaxed atmosphere in a tea room. Young people are also welcome to come to our regular weekly workshops at Kunstlabor2. Photography, art and music workshops are offered. The group offerings are intended to provide a protected space and thus contribute to the psychological stability of the participants.

Marvin Scheler will gladly accept registrations and questions about the offerings at
