Art Therapy in Galleries & Museums: Exploring the possibilities of a contemporary art gallery as an inspiring context for art therapy with young people.

 
For the first ever National Museums and Wellbeing Week (29 February - 6 March 2016) BAAT are celebrating Art Therapy in Museums and Galleries...

 

 

The City of Broken Dreams is part of a new art therapy project involving the Northumberland and Newcastle Gateshead Children and young Peoples’ Services and BALTIC.

BALTIC is a major international centre for contemporary art situated on the south bank of the River Tyne in Gateshead, England. BALTIC has gained an international reputation for its commissioning of cutting-edge temporary exhibitions. It presents a distinctive and ambitious programme of exhibitions and events, and is a world leader in the presentation and commissioning of contemporary visual art. Housed in a landmark ex-industrial building, BALTIC is the UK's largest dedicated contemporary art institution.

This project explored the possibilities of a contemporary art gallery as an inspiring context for art therapy.

Working alongside a BALTIC artist and two art therapists, seven young people explored their thoughts and feelings inspired by Fiona Tan’s exhibition DEPOT at BALTIC.
 
Art Therapists: Whittaker Scott and Michael Fischer
 
Artist: Leslie-anne Rose
