YOHAKU Art Collective



We are YOHAKU – an international collective of expressive arts facilitators. We support processes of inquiry and transformation through art-making. Using the expressive arts methodology we facilitate change in individuals, groups, and communities. Learn more
Yohaku Art Collective opens up to the empty space of yohaku, which is one of the six elements of Japanese beauty. It represents a pause, a margin or a blank space between words or design elements and implies meaning. Learn more
We consciously leave an empty space for joyful art creation, a face-to-face encounter with true needs and longings, and active participation in learning through art-making. In our work, we focus on your specific needs and invite you to co-create a space where a dialogue with various art forms becomes possible. Learn more
Currently, we offer mental support in the form of individual expressive arts sessions, individual and group online art-based sessions, workshops, and community activities. In our work, we use expressive arts therapy methods. Learn more
