Social Justice for Creative Art Therapies

The Creative Arts Therapies Students of Colour Alliance is proud to invite Dr. Nisha Sajnani (NYU, Director of the Program in Drama Therapy and the Founder of the Theatre & Health Lab, Principal Editor of Drama Therapy Review) and Dr. Savneet Talwar (SAIC, Chair of the graduate art therapy and counselling program at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Author of Art Therapy for Social Justice: Radical Intersections) for a public talk on social justice in the creative arts therapies. 

This talk is free of charge and open to the public! The event will take place in Concordia University's Visual Arts Building in room VA-323 on the third floor. There is an elevator and the space is accessible. 

Concordia University is located on unceded Indigenous lands. The Kanien’kehá:ka Nation is recognized as the custodians of the lands and waters on which we gather today. Tiohtiá:ke/Montreal is historically known as a gathering place for many First Nations. Today, it is home to a diverse population of Indigenous and other peoples. We respect the continued connections with the past, present and future in our ongoing relationships with Indigenous and other peoples within the Montreal community.

This event is made possible with the financial support of the Concordia Small Grants Program, Concordia University Alumni Association, Concordia Centre for Student Life, Quebec Public Interest Research Group of Concordia, Concordia's Sustainability Action Fund and the Concordia Department of Creative Arts Therapies.
