AATA’s DE&I Gallery

For the second year the DEI committee presents this exhibition as a catalyst to connect and bond through the sharing of these art expressions, and as a way to begin envisioning a new past, present and future for our field.

This show accentuates a group of 2021 AATA Featured Members to pull forth and give space to underlying narratives that exist within art therapy and to highlight unique and expansive perspectives in the field. Whether it is in their own personal experiences, or responses impacted through client and community work, they each present stories and ideas that are woven into the fabric of art therapy.

*As part of this virtual exhibit, each participant was asked to answer the following questions:

What drew you to the field of art therapy?

What drives your current work?

Where do you see the field going?

What impact is needed to effect changes regarding DEI within the field of art therapy?
