Audience: CMMH workers and mental health clinicians who use creative expression and art making in their work with their clients and are interested in learning about the principles of preservation, display and exhibition of the artworks produced.
Join us for this half-day workshop that has been developed in collaboration with Vicserv for mental health workers who use art and art making in their work with clients. The production of such artworks can raise questions related to the ethics of the collection, display, conservation and storage of creative works made by people with an experience of mental illness and psychological trauma. Participants will be introduced to a range of skills and possible solutions related to collecting, conserving, exhibiting and reproducing such artworks.
By the end of the workshop the participants will be able to:
