Scottish Arts Therapies Forum calls for contributors for arts and health conference

Scottish Arts Therapies Forum – Call for conference contributors – posted 05.4.2011

deadline: 30 April 2011

Taking place on 8th October, ‘Talking together – Working together: Exploring Arts and Health’ is a conference designed for arts workers/artists/therapists, service users and carers. Presented by the Scottish Arts Therapies Forum (SATF), in collaboration with Voluntary Arts Scotland, the event aims is to develop a dialogue between Art Therapies and Arts and Health practitioners, users of services and carers, to explore shared values, to enhance understanding of differences and to develop collaborative approaches to working with the arts.

To that end, SATF is looking for examples of good practice in the use of the arts – for psychological support, rehabilitation, social support and creative development – as practiced in arts therapies, community arts, arts in health and arts for recreation and learning. If your practice includes any of these categories, and you would like to give: a 1 hour presentation; a practical workshop; or a poster display, then please email:
