Art Therapy in Brunei Darussalam

Nadiah will discuss about pioneering art therapy in Brunei based on experience – in the community (past projects under OpenHearts, experiences with UBD and working freelance with support from Clarity) and in hospital.

She will share her experiences working with people with disabilities (neurological disorders such as stroke, seizures, individuals with chronic pain/migraine and cancer) and how they have benefited from art making.

Nadiah will also highlight the benefits of art therapy and the challenges for art therapy in Brunei Darussalam. Nevertheless there is potential for the growth of art therapy in Brunei Darussalam and contribution to the community, jobs and the economy.
