Call for Papers: Goldsmiths Art Therapy Conference 2016

We’d like to inform you of this Call for Papers for Goldmiths Art Therapy Conference 2016 entitled Finding Spaces, Making Places: Exploring social and cultural space in contemporary Art Therapy practice which will be taking place from Wednesday 13 April – Saturday 16 April 2016 at Goldsmiths, University of London, New Cross, London SE14 6NW.

Call For Papers
We are seeking proposals from Art Therapists, Dance Movement Therapists, and Community Artists who wish to present an afternoon paper during our conference in April 2016. Proposals should address the aims of the conference which seeks to gather Art therapists, Dance Movement Therapists and other interested professionals, together to explore spaces, and the making of places.

We want to debate the many different contemporary practices in art therapy and dance movement therapy, and the many different ways of using the spaces of art, to make places where creativity can flourish and where the arts can be used ‘to help people’.

It is intended that two papers of 30 minutes duration be presented consecutively, followed by 30 minutes open discussion with the audience. Therefore presentations of papers should last no longer than 30 minutes.

Please present your proposals to us in an abstract of no more than 250 words. Attach a biographical outline showing your highest qualification and providing an account of your affiliations, that is place of work or institutions that you have contracts with. We would also like a contact address. Please also detail any special equipment requirements you may have.

Proposals should be sent to and reach us before Friday 30th October 2015.
