Creative Arts Therapies offer means to maintain, improve or restore physical, psychological, cognitive and social abilities. With the help of professional Creative Arts Therapists, individuals and communities can benefit from Art, Music, Dance/Movement, Drama and Play Therapy to reach their full potential for living well.
From September 17 - 27, 4TH SPACE engaged with practitioners-researchers and invited people to participate in workshops and demos. This unique opportunity to learn more about the therapeutic values of creative and performing arts while experiencing first-hand the benefits of Creative Arts Therapies was not to be missed.
This series of events was led by Dr. Guylaine Vaillancourt, Associate Professor and Chair of the Department of Creative Arts Therapies at Concordia, organized in collaboration with Concordia’s Arts in Health Research Collective, and presented with the support of Health Initiative at Concordia.
