Yohaku Art Collective supports individuals, groups, and communities in welcoming change through art-making.
We believe that when you are ready to live your questions, art can sustain you on this continuously emerging path.
Using art-based research and Expressive Arts methodology, we look for undiscovered resources, new perspectives, and more sustainable ways of coping with difficulties accompanying processes of change.
Our mission is to support processes of inquiry and transformation through art-making.
We are there for our clients to help them to truly relax into art-making, find new ways of self-expression, and make sense out of what emerges in the process of creation.
We offer profound experiential sessions, group workshops, and community activities both offline and online.
Through Expressive Arts, one gets a chance to become a sensitive observer of the internal world and respond to what is present there with more gentleness and less judgement. Arts liberate us from the negative self-talk, internal stiffness, and unrealistic expectations. What wants to express itself, expresses itself… and we can move on in life with more ease.
For how long are you trying to fight overall stiffness, creative blockages, and disconnection from your body? Do you feel restricted, limited, and heavy? Are you bored with typical tools used in self-development that failed to bring you satisfaction and peace?

This is the ART OF BEING in this world mastered through DOING. Join us to make space for the new to arrive and encounter yourself in the process of art-making.
How we work?
- We place the arts in the centre of human experience. Whatever question you come with, individually or as a group, profound and experiential art-based work is the key. Everything starts with the arts. That is how we make the magic happen!
- We create an open space for an honest dialogue, during which something new can emerge. We invite you to enter this safe and non-judgemental zone and experiment with the arts.
- We refer to your potential, your sensitivity and your intuition. We inspire you to create and to look at art as your companion on the way to a more fulfilling life. We ask you questions and we listen to the answers that art gives together with you.
- We are your sounding board, the midwives of your creative process and the meaning hunters. We are the holders of space, the listeners and the witnesses of
- We challenge you to go deeper, to be slower, quieter and to look, feel, touch and listen to what is present at this very moment.
Experiential Sessions & Workshops
The Expressive Arts process is for everyone who is ready for an adventurous journey into the imaginative world of the arts. We just ask you to be open to experimentation with various forms of expression.
We invite individuals, groups, and communities to explore their potential through a profound and experiential art-based work. We offer individual sessions, exciting exploratory workshops, and experimental community art projects both offline and online.
No previous experience with art-making is required! This process is really for everyone.
Art-making and creative experiments are our main areas of interest. Together, we create art projects and through doing so we allow ourselves to move into more genuine self-expression. Art is our way of cultivating self-care, developing insights, dealing with difficulties and insecurities, building resilience, finding answers to questions that we live with and making life more meaningful.
We are open to new collaboration opportunities with other facilitators, therapists, artists, educators, and activists. We invite you to an open dialog about how we could make a change through art together.
