International Postcard Exchange Postmarks [SlideShare Presentation]

November 7, 2011

This post features the presentation I did at the Canadian Art Therapy Association and Ontario Art Therapy Association joint conference last week about Art Therapy Without Borders’ International Postcard Art Exchange.

The presentation includes the project, its impact, and the role of art and social networking to connect the art therapy community worldwide:

It was a pleasure to explore attendees’ interest in using the combination of social media, art-making, and online connecting to create outreach and community.

It was also great to meet community members face to face at the conference who have participated in either ATWB’s postcard art exchange or past Art Therapy Alliance Artist Trading Card exchanges!

Postcard Art Batch #2 for ATWB Exchange

December 9, 2010

Postmarks from Planet Art Therapy

I just finished up my second batch of postcard art for Art Therapy Without Borders International Postcard Art Exchange. This batch includes postcards going to destinations such as Australia, Canada, and throughout the US.

The postcard above includes a collage of some of the used postage and mailing stuff I received from postcard art sent in envelopes from Italy, Australia, and the US.

This 6 month exchange just passed the 1 month mark and postcard art continues to arrive via ATWB’s mailbox from all over world!  I am really enjoying this global collaboration and connection with art therapists and art therapy students everywhere! Check out postcard art as it arrives via ATWB’s Facebook page or on Google.

Social Media and the Global Art Therapy Community

August 2, 2010

I am very excited to be a presenter for the 1st Annual Creative Arts Therapies Teleconference, August 23-27, 2010 and honored to be co-presenting again on of my favorite topics; social media and art therapy.

I will be presenting on Day 2 of the ICAT conference about Leveraging the International Art Therapy Community through Social Media.

The presentation will introduce and highlight the many on-line resources and web tools available for art therapists to use for promoting, developing, and supporting international art therapy work and the work of art therapists worldwide.

Here’s a little on what attendees will learn about during this presentation:

  • How social media and technology are bringing together art therapists, students, and interested professionals together in a global web community for exchanging information, resources, and discussions;
  • The importance of leveraging your connection and participation within an international art therapy community to network and collaborate;
  • How the international art therapy community can be utilized for social transformation and encourage the use of art for service to others in need

What’s especially innovative about this conference is that attendees can have access to leading edge creative arts therapists practicing across the globe, without having to leave the comforts of  home or worry about expensive conference costs.   Here’s a way to access affordable learning through the ease of a teleconference!

I invite you to join me and the other featured expert speakers for five days about the field of art therapies and expressive arts! Learn new techniques and tools to revitalize your practice, as well as bring new knowledge and energy to your clinical work.
