Work in these fields currently takes place within single disciplines (such as Art Therapy, Music Therapy and Applied Theatre); the main objective of the conference is to bring these and related disciplines together to explore a variety of issues common to both subjects, including: the relationship between creativity and mental health; the arts as a means of changing perceptions and provoking discussion around mental health issues; art as therapy, recovery and resilience; the arts and the representation of mental health in the public sphere.
