Throughout the ages art has been used as a connective pathway to both the higher mind and the divine, and psychology has been intrinsically connected to the creative arts in a plethora of ways. Art is perhaps the truest and most candid manifestation of the human psyche which results in surprisingly transformative outcomes for the artist and those experiencing the work. The nature of artistic self actualization is indeed what sets apart the human species from all other life-forms on Earth. In our lecture and interactive session on ‘Art, creativity and the human psyche’ we will be exploring these concepts and the role that Art and creativity play in our personal and collective developmental functioning.
