The MA Art Therapy Programme (MAAT), in collaboration with Singapore Association for Mental Health, hopes to raise awareness of mental health amongst our youth by facilitating a greater understanding of mental health and wellbeing, as well as provide ways to support the community. Traces will render responses and reflective experiences of some of our MAAT trainees’ professional interactions with children living with adversity. Informed by the landmark epidemiological Adverse Childhood Experiences research study, the installations at Traces will converge expressions and explorations, aiming to work towards destigmatising perceptions around mental health, engage dialogue, provoke new thinking, and narrow the distance between the “diseased” and the “dis-eased”.
The exhibition opens on 10 October at 10:00am to 3:00pm, and will run until 10 November.
Venue: Ngee Ann Kongsi Library, LASALLE College of the Arts
When: 10 Oct - 10 Nov 2018,
