A Call for Artists

      
Mirrors of the Mind 10: The Psychotherapist as Artist
                    in the (Hopeful) Wake of Coronavirus



THIS IS A VIRTUAL ART EXHIBITION! ALL ARE WELCOME TO CONTRIBUTE!

The Arts, Creativity and Culture Committee harnesses the creativity of clinicians to educate, inspire, and promote reflection and dialogue about power, privilege, racism, protest, and social justice. Throughout history the arts have had a unique and powerful role in social change by bringing our attention to suffering and giving us hope. We believe in the liberating power of the arts to promote empathy, be a catalyst for social healing and provide us a greater sense of interconnectedness.
