Millions of people around the world are currently considered internally displaced persons, and are living in refugee camps within their own countries. In Colombia for example, the continuing armed conflict has displaced nearly four million Colombians since 1985, according to the Internal Displacement Monitoring Centre. Art for Refugees in Transition (A.R.T.), a non-profit organization founded by Sara Green, is working to enrich the lives of displaced groups in Colombia through their own native arts and crafts.
