April 7th and 8th at NYU

Nelson, BC, June 8 to 10, 2006:
Innovation in Arts & Health Symposium
This symposium is sponsored by the Kutenai Art Therapy Institute, Kootenay School of Art, Selkirk College, Academy of Classical Oriental Sciences, Community First Health Cooperative, Interior Health Authority & Nelson and District Arts Council.

Innovation in Arts & Health Symposium Description

The primary focus of the symposium will be to consider the significance and interrelationship of arts, culture and health. The vision is to explore the role all forms of expressive arts play in promoting the health of individuals and families within the community. The connection between an individual’s health and their involvement in creative expression through the practise of various art forms has been well documented. The intention is to demonstrate through presentations and workshops the value of arts and culture in all aspects of health: emotional, physical, mental and spiritual. It is anticipated that the symposium will strengthen and enhance the capacity of organizations in rural communities to build relationships that will open doors for artists to participate in meaningful work in health fields.

Later in June In Mississippi:
Intergenerational puppet-making and storytelling and
Creating Resilience through Puppet-making and Storytelling for professionals and volunteers working with communities under stress.

Hi Lani,
If i were in the Vermont area i would be signing up right now!
Are your collages all hand done or do you use digital art and manipulation as well?
It is just wonderful!

Hi Marybeth,
Some is straight collage with glue and scissors and scraps of cloth and paper, some is mixed, most of these on the blog spot, though, art digital, old scanned photos and postcards.
(I love photoshop because you can undo stuff and there's no glue)

This looks like a fun workshop! Too bad about distances.

Lani said...

Hmmmm, well, I will be offering e-workshops shortly.

That could be from anywhere.
