Claremont Project | £8
This series of workshops facilitated by Kris Black from Radical Dialogues deepens the work we have begun in the previous The British Association of Art Therapists (BAAT) Race & Culture creative workshop series – which enabled us to begin the work of exploration using an intersectional lens; to explore self and relationship to others, using the arts as a medium for growth, exploration, regeneration and communication – inter, intra, and cross-culturally.
An Integrative Arts Psychotherapy approach will enable safe containment, the offer of personal and political exploration, via pairs work, small and large group work within an intersectional and anti oppressive framework.
The focus of the series is to help encourage attitudes of openness in addressing and exploring experiences of difference in a safe and non-discriminatory way. Attendees are invited to bring past experiences and issues of exploring difference in the therapeutic space, including working with client’s through art making, as specific experiences to work through.
Come willing to explore and flex the muscles of your creativity, honing your listening skills – within a community to explore making art and making sense of the worlds we inhabit and those of our clients.
The space offers an opportunity during the difficult times we live in to work on the political through personal exploration. We will experiment through art making and image in order to make meaning of, share and find language for our experiences.
Themes are repeated twice – enabling extension and reflection of the work. You are welcome to work on yourself or your relationship with others, including clients. The workshops may be attended as a one off, or as the whole series.
NB: other dates in this series, 25th October, 29th November and 20th December 2020.
