dc.description.abstractThroughout the United States and Canada, groups of newcomers, including resettled refugees and immigrants, get together to work on various artistic projects. In some cases, newcomer artisans sustain traditional arts and crafts-making skills from their countries of origin. In other cases, artisans learn new artistic skills and techniques with the intention of selling products to generate supplemental income or developing employable job skills. By participating in these groups, newcomers have opportunities to practice English, engage in cross-cultural exchange, express themselves creatively, and forge new friendships. Newcomers often feel a sense of accomplishment, self-confidence, belonging, and improved well-being by participating in these groups. Furthermore, the broader communities in which these groups exist benefit from a more diverse and culturally vibrant environment.en_US
