Wednesday 30 November, 7.30 to 8.30pm
A4 Sounds, St Joseph’s Parade, Off Upper Dorset Street, Dublin 1
Deirdre Ronan will join us at the A4 Gallery to talk about her practice as both an art therapist and visual artist. This talk will provide an introduction to art therapy as a therapeutic intervention and will be of interest to those which may be considering a career in art therapy or working in a similar context as an artist.
As an art therapist she believes that the art process and product are unique in creating a container for that which is unsayable. Similarly, as a psychotherapist she acts as the container for her clients. She is the holding space. As such her work is multi-layered, seeking to mirror the dynamic essence of systems and relationships and her various roles within these. In engaging with her process she seeks to explore and repair.
