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.

這個多層面的訓練計劃包括藝術治療在精神復康社區工作的專業培訓,應用和研究。

是次展覽展出的作品,全部為精神復康者的藝術創作,創作過程皆在參與藝術治療培訓和督導的精神復康工作者的指導下完成。

藝術作品提供了一個管道,窺視復康中的藝術家的內心世界; 揭示藝術如何將快樂灌輸到生活中,並與他人聯繫。

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。

是次展覽為香港浸會大學社工系助理教授藍建文博士的藝術治療計研究及訓練計畫。這項計劃的合作伙伴為香港心理衞生會。香港心理衞生會並為計劃提供參加訓練的社工及復元人士。陳卓甄和黃翠雯小姐為展覽策展人及參與藝術家。
