Welcome to our online art exhibition supporting clients/artists of the SECADA Open Art Studio. One of the challenges of therapy can come in communicating feelings and ideas. Art Therapy offers a safe way of making sense of our experience and how it shapes our world view. The enthusiastic way in which participants embraced therapy – through art, is evidenced in the pieces of work on display including for many, the symbols and meanings that sit behind them. The increased levels of engagement and popularity of this approach has been a key feature over the past 12 months. SECADA is proud to have been a sponsor or the program and delighted with the positive outcomes and feedback by participants from different backgrounds. It is our sincere hope that our clients, along with their friends and family, will find comfort and inspiration in the creative works on display. It is a magnificent achievement.

Special thanks go to the artists themselves, the art therapist Sandra Hatton and the Dandenong City Council for supporting this important and worthwhile endeavour.
