Art Therapy and Environment

Research output: Contribution to journalEditorial


Environment is an essential companion to art therapy. It says something and makes an impression that is not neutral. Environment is influential in demarcating the significance of an overall space, and also references multiple locations for art making within a particular setting. It is an atmosphere that invites participation, makes a scene, and bears witness to art therapy's proceedings. Art therapy environments are ecologies that produce particular conditions for creation. Environment is the here-and-now and what could be. It affects art-based decisions, actions, and connectivity. The surroundings of art therapy are the starting point, so they should offer something, at the very least reassurance
