Creating Space Conference
Creating Space for Arts and Humanities in the Education of Health Professionals:
WHERE DO WE GO FROM HERE? A Canadian Perspective
Date & Time: Saturday May 7, 2011 @ 9am-5pm
Location: Mount Sinai Hospital, Department of Psychiatry
600 University Ave, 18th Floor Auditorium, Toronto, Ontario
Keynote Speakers: Drs. Alan Bleakley and Brian Goldman
This first annual Canadian conference on medical and health humanities is designed to take the pulse of our shared work and to bring together colleagues from multiple disciplines - the arts, social sciences and humanities, located in various settings (clinical, academic, artistic) - in order to share ideas, teaching/learning/evaluative strategies, and inquiry approaches - to further shape health professional education and healthcare in this country.
I want to remind our blog visitors about the "Creating Space" Conference to be held in Toronto May 7. Looks like it will be an excellent opportunity to hear about new perspectives in arts, humanities, health and education.

A day workshop session is being planned by IJCAIP, The International Journal of the Creative Arts in Interdisciplinary Practice and is expected to be held in London, Ontario in late spring.
The topic of the workshop will be around accessing and creating your own personal story (through movement, writing and drama methods) and using the creative arts in practice for hope and change. The day workshop will offer professionals and others an opportunity to have an "embodied" experience with the arts while learning expressive skills and methods which could be used in communities or professionally in the workplace.
Building on the success of the CAIP, Creative Arts in Interdisciplinary Practice book series,
"Creative Arts in Interdisciplinary Practice, Inquiries for Hope and Change" , and the
upcoming book, "Creative Arts in Research for Community and Cultural Change" published by Detselig Temeron Books, Editor, Cheryl McLean will facilitate the workshop which is expected to take place in late May.
