Art based empowerment : what is the artist's role in preventive youth work?  Health prevention method that enables young people to assess risks and make healthy choices in life, using the artistic and creative process as a way to gain empowerment, awareness, and learning to overcome obstacles.

The artistic process is a process of creating and shaping. “Art based empowerment” wants to open up various aspects of the creative process used by artists to young people. Providing this, does not make every young person want to be an artist in its narrow traditional meaning (e.g. become a painter or a sculptor). Art based empowerment wants be understood in an art context the way that everyone has got his or her own creative potential to use and shape their own lives.

Art –a process of awareness and action- can be the tool for young people to find different ways and experiment with various strategies to deal with their own self within the environment that surrounds them. Art and the creative process can therefore also be used in prevention.
