We live in an age of planetary crisis. Not only climate change, but also a worldwide extinction of species and the overall destruction of the environment, are prevalent everywhere. How can the expressive arts therapy respond to this crisis? Can ecopoiesis, a creative and aesthetic approach to the world, be the basis for environmental thought and action?

The panelists, leaders in the field of the arts therapies, will approach these questions from different points of view and explore the possibilities for creative response to the environment at this critical time in human history.

Co-hosts: José Miguel Calderón and Stephen K. Levine
