An exhibition of drawing, painting, sculpture and collage presented by the Sydney Area Arts Therapy Group (SaAT).
This exhibition features the artistic explorations by Creative Arts Therapists, reflecting on their lived experience, their professional journey, and their dual identity of arts therapist and artist, whilst navigating the climate of uncertainty over the last few years.
Their primary aim is to promote creative arts therapy to a wider audience by highlighting the artistic identity of arts therapists. These artists hope to provide the audience with a felt sense of the therapeutic process from the art therapist’s perspective.
Arts therapy invites people to explore thoughts, feelings and experiences through art making when words are not enough. It has been a goal of this group to advocate for the accessibility of arts therapy as a mental health support.
The Sydney Area Arts Therapy Group (SaAT) is a Sydney based group of registered Creative Arts therapists, with the Australian New Zealand Creative Arts Therapy Association (ANZACATA), who meet monthly focusing on professional development for Arts Therapists practising across Sydney and the Blue Mountains region.
