Art in all its forms does not only have an aesthetic quality but also has the therapeutic ability to heal the soul.
Join us for an insightful conversation with French novelist and clinical art therapist Susanna Crossman as she talks about clinical art therapy and mental health with Sreejita Biswas, an Indian comic artist, and Shikha Mani, Salaam Baalak Trust.
The author will also talk about her book L’île sombre, (Dark Island), which explores how our presents are haunted by our pasts, and what happens when boundaries are crossed and frontiers are closed, leading to tyranny, violence and breakdown.
The conversation will be moderated by Brinda Jacob-Janvrin, an expressive arts therapist and a contemporary dancer.
