"The Power to Heal: A Community-Based Art Therapy Approach"



Keynote Speaker: Lindsey Vance, MA, LPC, ATR-BC

       Strengthening the reach of art therapy, particularly in communities of color, demands alternative approaches and cultural competency. Community-based art therapy practices with an emphasis on trauma sensitive framework creates opportunities to foster radical healing and collective well-being and eventually lead to healing centered engagement through empowerment and the age old, "meeting them where they are". This approach opens up a traditionally inaccessible system to communities who will greatly benefit from the use of art therapy and equip them with tools to furthering the healing in their own community.

Dear Creative Friends and Colleagues,

Welcome to our 39th Annual Buckeye Art Therapy SymposiumSeptember 10-12, 2020.  We are honored to have Lindsey Vance as our Pre-Conference Course and Keynote presenter and are thrilled to offer this experience virtually for the first time!


The BATA Symposium provides connections with our creative colleagues who share our interests, attitudes, and aspirations. It is a time of renewal, connections, and networking. We explore the latest advances in the identification of pivotal skills that our variety of presenters offer to share. It is our chance to deepen our grasp of the complex craft and profession of art therapy and learn how we can continue to enhance our sense of expertise and fulfillment.
