Working with traumatized people in the field, or in a hospital alongside patients is a very different experience than working in an art studio. Artists working in this field for the first time, need to adjust their practice to reflect the needs of the individuals and institutions with whom they are working. The artist role is more like that of a facilitator who guides and encourages the patient to find their own creative process: and engages with each person beyond their illness.
Artists who work with us undergo training to prepare them for being a guest on the medical unit or to work with survivors of gender-based violence.
If you are an artist who would like to learn how to work internationally with marginalized groups, in the medical environment, or if you are a decision maker within a hospital or retirement community who wants those who use art processes with your patients, please contact us.
We offer training on site or remotely for individuals or groups. We are happy to develop an education tool that meets your unique needs.
