Art for Healing
The Art for Healing and Social Change program has been developed to create opportunities for socially engaged art projects, exhibitions, artist talks, workshops, outreach programs and art therapy. This program has a specifically strong intergenerational focus, considering ways in which knowledge, experiences, stories as well as artistic and cultural practices are passed through generations, within communities, and across distances and time periods.
