The BAAT Open online gallery and how to get involved...

BAAT Open Gallery...

Is an online gallery showing images of artistic practices which have also been therapeutic. The gallery includes artworks from around the world. New artworks are selected and added to the galleries on InstagramPinterest and Facebook on Fridays, posted on all of BAAT's social media platforms, and featured in BAATs fortnightly eBulletin which is sent to over 3,000 members.

Images from the gallery are also occasionally selected for publication on the front covers of the International Journal of Art Therapy: Inscape and BAAT Newsbriefing.


Themed call for submissions

Although all artworks continue to be welcomed, during this time we have a special call for art...

International examinations of anti-oppressive art therapy: intersectionality, anti-colonialism, and cultural humility

The International Journal of Art Therapy: Inscape, Canadian Journal of Art Therapy & Art Therapy: Journal of the American Art Therapy Association are collaborating to simultaneously publish special issues addressing intersectionality, anti-colonialism, and cultural humility in the field of art therapy.

In addition to journal submissions, everyone is welcome to submit art-based responses to the themes of this Multi-Journal Collaborative Special Issue via the Art Therapists' Art Gallery & BAAT Open Gallery. Submissions can include photography, still images of artwork, or video art (max 1 minute).

All artworks which meet the gallery requirements will be included in the online exhibitions. Three artworks from the online galleries will be selected as Cover Art for the journals collaborating in this special issue. Please see submission guidance and requirements below.
