The MAGSIG Autumn Meeting took place on October 29th, 2016 at the BAAT offices in London. The Code of Practice was discussed as well as ways in which the profile of the MaGSIG can be raised. A research proposal has been suggested to members of the MaGSIG. Please see meeting minutes for more details (magsig-minutes-29-10-16)
This week is National Museums and Wellbeing WEEK.
Events, Activities and Inspiration showcasing projects can be found here. BAAT will also be posting projects that MAGSIG members are involved in on their Facebook page for each day of the week!
A fascinating slew of articles written by various MAGSIG members featured in December 2015 issue of BAAT Newsbriefing. The 4 articles give insight into how our members have brought art therapy practice successfully into gallery and museum settings. They are great overviews that can be shared easily to further promote art therapy beyond clinical settings.
You can find them here, in one handy document.
If you would like to quote form the articles, please reference them to BAAT, Newsbriefing December 2015 and the individual authors.
Venue : Orleans House Gallery Twickenham

In this meeting you will have the opportunity to hear from Art Therapists who have worked on inspiring projects (in museum and galleries) and have the opportunity to discuss their work. We will share together ways of using existing images and objects with participants / clients, creating a list of working methods. You will also have the opportunity to help MagSig develop (and take part) in its first UK pilot project.
