Annual conference 2024: Art therapy and innovation: attending to context and relationship

This year our annual conference will be held in person at the Wellcome Collection on Saturday 9 November 2024. Together we will explore art therapy and innovation, looking at some of the changes in practice that have developed over recent years.

Presentations will enable us to reflect on how art therapists attend to context and relationship, meeting challenges creatively and developing new, exciting ways of working. Making art across the day will deepen and enrich our thinking, drawing out the links to practice to inform questions and discussion.

We will see how taking account of context and relationship can also help us to hold onto what is core about our practice and to maintain integrity; guiding the way we incorporate research, different ideas, and use new opportunities on the horizon.

The day will offer inspiration and grounded, critical reflection to enable participants to feel better equipped to innovate – safely, effectively and with integrity – enhancing art therapy practice in service of our clients and the communities we support.
