Located at Concordia University’s Loyola Campus in Montreal, Quebec, the Centre is under the auspices of the Graduate Department of Creative Arts Therapies in the Faculty of Fine Arts. The Centre’s practices are unique in Canada, employing four types of creative arts therapies (art, dance/movement, drama and music) to promote autonomy, improve self-confidence, build social skills, and enhance the overall quality of life for its participants.


Our advisory board consists of community members and professionals who volunteer their time and expertise toward the Centre for the Arts in Human Development’s sustainability, programs and fundraising efforts.

The Centre for the Arts in Human Development has an ongoing partnership with the West Montreal Readaptation Centre for the provision of therapeutic services. This partnership has been in place since the Centre began in 1996.


There is also an agreement with Miriam Home and Services to provide services to selected clients.


A partnership with the Department of Creative Arts Therapies at Concordia University is inherent in the structure of the Centre. The Centre provides practical training in the creative arts therapies for, on average, 10 graduate students annually.

The Department of Education at Concordia University also works with the Centre for the Arts in Human Development. The Centre offers learning and research opportunities for students in the Department of Education through the Centre's Director of Research, Dr. Miranda D'Amico.
