This film is a collage about art therapy pioneers, educators and practitioners from around the world. Comprised of interviews, photos, news broadcasts, and archival footage selected from 200 hours contributed by over 100 professional colleagues, it demonstrates the power of art as a universal language for healing in all cultures. From its beginnings in Europe to its development in the US and the UK, art therapy has spread rapidly to all parts of Europe, as well as to Central and South America, Oceania, Asia, Africa and the Middle East.
The DVD, funded by the Prasad Family Foundation, can be viewed either in its entirety or as 10 unique chapters. We hope that this film will serve not only as a documentary of the development of global art therapy, but that it will also facilitate the development of additional training programs by our colleagues worldwide, so that more people in more places can benefit from the healing power of art.
Total Running Time: 45 minutes
