Abstract

The art pieces shown at the conference were informed by current and significant local, national and international contexts, including the continuing so called ‘migrant crisis’ and the effects of on-going financial cuts to mental health services (Foley, 2013; Mind, 2014); issues that the art psychotherapists see as points of struggle but that might otherwise be imagined and realised as opportunities, through radical praxis, for sustainable socially just futures.

Summary of participatory content. Each artist provided a reflective piece of writing to accompany their art work included in the exhibition that briefly explained to viewers the thinking and rationale behind the work. Below is a sample of each artist’s contribution with title, media and reflective description of work. Art psychotherapists were available at the exhibition to discuss the art work and motivations behind it with conference participants, which enhanced the contributions of both parties.
