36th Annual Illinois Art Therapy Conference
Intersecting Art Therapy and Social Justice
Saturday, October 22nd, 2016
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.
