Links established in 2004 between Žagares Specialioji Internatine Mokykla, in northern Lithuania and Sandgate Special School in Kendal, Cumbria, UK, have been advanced this year.

A far reaching project of exchange has been agreed, starting in January 2007.

TRAMHA Transatlantic Research Network on Mental Health and the Arts - The benefits of creative activities for mental health have been increasingly acknowledged in recent years because of the transforming capacity of the arts and because of their general positive effects on wellbeing. Participation in the arts has been identified as an effective route for personal growth, leading to enhanced confidence which is an important achievement towards mental health. We will contribute to the forthcoming discussions of the TRAMHA research network to discuss the complex nature of this subject. To learn more about the network click here

British Lithuanian Interest - Photographs and articles about the Rytojus project have appeared in Tiltas, the journal of the British Lithuanian Society .
