Healing Ways: Art with Intent

 

Overview

Healing Ways: Art with Intent explores the role of art in promoting emotional healing and wellbeing in Indigenous Australian communities.

This program aims to facilitate discussion about a range of relevant artistic and cultural practices, both past and present, taking place in Indigenous Australian communities.

It is hoped that knowledge gained from these discussions will:

The project and its outcomes, including a symposium, an exhibition and the production of internet-based resources, aim to gather expertise and share knowledge to advocate for the use of art and creativity for emotional wellbeing among Aboriginal communities and to increase understanding of the emotional world of Aboriginal people through art.

This project is a collaboration between the Dax Centre at the University of Melbourne, the Lowitja Institute and Desart.
