A Conference for Creative Arts Therapists and Arts-Based Practitioners Responding to Today’s Global Challenges

How does arts-based practice influence global change? How do the arts enable health, growth and social dialogues during times of crisis? How do we make sense of each other and ourselves in ways that explore growth, community, social action, identity and otherness amidst times of growing divide?

Delivered by leading thinkers and practitioners in the field, with a focus on the relationships between the UK, the US and the world. This conference brings together arts therapists, arts-based practitioners, academics and researchers to explore the bigger picture about how we experience, understand and relate to otherness where today’s challenges are political, ecological and relational.

This conference is for arts therapists, arts in health workers, social workers, psychotherapists, psychologists, creatives, entrepreneurs, health professionals, people who want to help people to engage in arts to change the world we live in for the better.
