The Creative Arts Therapies Residency

Art Volt is happy to announce a new residency program designed specifically to help support recent alumni of the Creative Arts Therapies program by providing them opportunities within Montreal based organizations. To this end, we are thrilled to collaborate with the Alzheimer Groupe, the Jewish General Department of Child Psychiatry and the Pointe-Saint-Charles Art School at Bâtiment 7.

Program overview

The Creative Arts Therapies Residency is a program which aims to help three emerging practitioners develop online or onsite services, grow their professional network and gain valuable experiences. One recent alumni from each of the Creatives Arts Therapies programs (Art, Drama and Music) will be selected and paired with a Montreal-based organization. 

Each selected candidate will receive an honorarium of $1350 for a 2 hour weekly presence at the site (online or onsite depending on the situation), to develop and deliver a weekly group therapy session for 13 weeks from September to December. The alumni will be working closely with the organization to develop the one-hour group, the 2nd hour will consist of preparation, documentation and guiding the Concordia Graduate Diploma student.

Recognising the generous support

This initiative is made possible by the generous support of the Peter N. Thomson Family Innovation Fund.
