Spaces and Places: Where We Create


It’s exciting to announce a new art collaboration coming in February being organized by The Art Therapy Alliance!  Spaces & Places: Where We Create will be an art therapy community photo documentary project developed by Magdalena Karlick, ATR, LPAT, LPCC and Gretchen Miller, MA, ATR-BC inviting participants to submit a photo of their creative work space and favorite tools of the trade. 

Through social media and digital photo sharing with Flickr & Instagram, this collaborative project aims to provide education, awareness, inspiration, and understanding about the spaces & places, settings, populations, and materials that art therapists, art therapy students, expressive arts therapists, and art organizations work in and use for their practice.

Photos (or video!) that this project will be looking for include:
  • Images of your creative space:  Where you work, intern, or your own personal art-making space
  • Commonly used art supplies and media in your art therapy work or internship with clients
  • Favorite technique: An art intervention or technique approach with individuals or in groups
  • If your creative space has changed: Before and after photos
Submission guidelines and more details to be announced when the project officially launches!  Information will be posted to the Spaces & Places: Where We Create project page and here on February 13.

Call to Organizations, Programs, & Blogs:  Interested in becoming an endorser of Spaces & Places: Where We Create to help promote the project? Contact Gretchen Miller, MA, ATR-BC at info@arttherapyalliance.org for more information. 

The Art Therapy Alliance is proud to be partnering with Art Therapy Without Borders and International Art Therapy Organization for this new project, with endorsement by  Southwestern College, PeaceLove Studios, Art Therapy Institute North Carolina, and Sock Monkey Art Therapy
