Dear Anna, |
Judy has alerted me to your message/request.
I am interested to hear you are at Leeds. I did my Fine Art BA there a long time ago! (76-79). However, after continuing from Leeds to Holland, I returned to UK and trained in Art Therapy, which I have been doing ever since.
During the last 2 yrs I have developed a broader based ARTS IN HEALTH programme locally (N.Wales) which includes both arts therapists and artist practitioners. It is early days following some pilots but we are about to enter a 3yr programme of hospital and community residencies.
I share this as I wonder if it may be of use for you to approach Leeds Arts Therapists and /or Arts in Health programmes. Manchester Arts for Health is a good north west link to look at (re the latter) and baat.org.uk for regional Art Therapy info/contact.
