36th Annual Illinois Art Therapy Conference

Intersecting Art Therapy ​and Social Justice
Saturday, October 22nd, 2016


This year's conference seeks to strengthen the role of art therapist in promoting social change, and to deepen our commitment to practices that aim to achieve social justice. We are presenting a call to action to acknowledge our responsibility to our community and to educate ourselves about prevalent issues of individual, collective, and institutional oppression, injustice, and violence. We aim within this conference to promote an open dialogue in order to dissect these processes, define the role that we as art therapists can play, and learn how to better serve as allies and direct collaborators for transformative social change.

Lecturers include SAIC Faculty and Alumns: Randy Vick, Cathy Moon, Val Newman, Jeannette Perkel, Sze-Chin Lee, and Caroline Edasis. Please click here for full presentation descriptions.
