Illinois Art Therapy Association and Illinois Dance Movement Therapy Association would like to invite you to join us for an educational workshop of art therapy and dance movement collaboration in East Africa. This presentation will introduce audience members to how the arts are used in the Kibera Slum of Nairobi to support "ghetto positivity" and help youth avoid a life of drugs and petty crime. It will also address the ethical and practical challenges and the emerging successes of implementing cross-cultural, collaborative, paraprofessional therapeutic arts trainings in East Africa.
Please RSVP by 6/9. This event is free for members of Illinois Art Therapy Association and Illinois Dance Movement Therapy Association. $10 dollars suggested donation is encouraged for non members.
