The creative process involved in expressing one’s self artistically can help people to resolve issues as well as develop and manage their behaviors and feelings, reduce stress, and improve self-esteem and awareness.

You don’t need to be talented or an artist to receive the benefits, and there are professionals that can work with you to dive into the underlying messages communicated through your art, which will aid in the healing process.

Art therapy can achieve different things for different people. It can be used for counseling by therapists, healing, treatment, rehabilitation, psychotherapy, and in the broad sense of the term, it can be used to massage one’s inner-self in a way that may provide the individual with a deeper understanding of him or herself.


Arteterapia: Protected area

TRAKT prepared the selection of student’s videoart’s matters based on the "protected area" theme for the festival The Art Therapy. The topic of videoart was associated with the theme of war and most of the videos came from the workshop W3. As they were current student’s works, the theme of war was taken very individually and often metaphorically. No one from artists has experienced war on their own skin, but they are facing with its various forms in today’s world. Visitors had the chance to see different perspectives, views and formal solutions in the form of video art.
