About this Event

NOTE: This is an add-on ticket intended for Conference Passholders. Only registrations by Conference Passholders will be considered valid. If you have not purchased your base Conference Pass, please do so here.

This workshop will provide the opportunity to connect with what 'the arts' means to us as individuals. It will utilise various methods to encourage connection around our own relationship to the arts, exploring our own comfort and discomfort.

In this workshop, drama and movement psychotherapist, Rachel Irving, will share some of her own experiences of using the arts (the unconventional) within the public sector (conventional spaces) and invite participants to engage in their own process of creative exploration. The workshop will also offer an opportunity for participants to experience some of the approaches used when working creatively as a therapist.

Pre-Requisite: Participants need to prepare at minimum pencils, pens and paper. Other art resources such as pastels, paint etc. are also welcome.
