Cultural Intersections in Art Therapy Series 2020

The NDNU Art Therapy Psychology Department presents a series of continuing education workshops aimed at expanding art therapists’ understanding of art across communities where we live, create, and work, specifically in consideration of all aspects of culture including race, ethnicity, gender, age, sexuality, gender identity, and ability status. These workshops examine issues of power, systemic and internalized oppression, social justice, equity, and marginalized voices, as well as how our individual and societal experiences influence our work with our clients.

Art therapy traditionally espoused values and dominant narratives that echo psychology, health, and art. Using this patriarchal way of knowing systematically silenced the perspective of art therapists of color and advocated for dominant paradigms (Talwar, 2016). As art therapists living in these times, we are obligated to continue building cultural humility and addressing relationships of power with clients and colleagues. These workshops will be presented from multiple cultural identities and understandings, and we hope the creative process can serve to shift the paradigm of oppression within our profession.
