Art Exhibition: Alternative Medicine – Use of Art for Mental Wellness
「快樂之鑰 – 藝術應用與精神復康訓練計劃」藝術展覽
This multifaceted project comprises professional training, application, and research of art therapy in a community rehabilitation setting. The art exhibitions highlight the artworks created by individuals undergoing mental health rehabilitation. The art-making process was guided by the participating mental health workers after they have received art therapy training and supervision in the project.
The art products were all created by individuals with mental health issues. These artworks provide a conduit to peep into the inner world of the artists, reveal how art can instill happiness, empower life, and connect one with others.
The rationale of the project is that creative art-making plays a role in fostering the wellbeing of life. In light of the intense attention upon mental health crises globally and locally, this project strives to contribute knowledge transfer in the areas of art therapy, by integrating them with creative art and mental health treatment.
鑒於全球和本地對心理健康危機的強烈關注, 這計劃本著相信創意藝術能促進生活幸福; 並努力將藝術治療、創意藝術和心理復康工作相結合,促進藝術治療領域的知識轉移。
