Art Therapy and The Care Collection - In Conversation with Art Therapist Dian Handayani
National Gallery Singapore and Singapore Art Museum recently teamed up to develop The Care Collection: Caring through the Arts. The Care Collection draws from the collection of both museums to provide a selection of artworks based on seven themes—courage, connection/disconnection, resilience, hope, growth, self-love/self-compassion and being in the present.
The curators of The Care Collection for National Gallery Singapore—Lim Shujuan, Goh Sze Ying and Clarissa Chikiamco—interviewed art therapist Dian Handayani from Singapore General Hospital (SGH) through a live video call to learn more about art therapy and the reception of The Care Collection. Dian is the leader of the SingHealth iTHRIVE ARTpreciate programme, which has been using the artworks from the collection to conduct regular art therapy sessions for SingHealth healthcare workers and staff since June 2020.
