Bologna, Italy Conference

We have had a great opportunity for disseminating our CoCreART project when Alison Walton-Robson spoke at a conference in Bologna on April 2nd 2011.

The conference has developed from the idea put forward in our original proposal and will explore the idea of CoCreation and the process of working together towards a common goal, looking more specifically at how this relates to the psyche and how it is used in a therapeutic setting.

The conference has been organised by Guilio Casini who applied to be a partner in the CoCreART project but unfortuantely did not receive the funding to join us. As his organisation specialises in the psychology of dance this will obviously be a focus of the conference, but it will be a good opportunity for Allie to disseminate our work and hear about other work that is happening in this field.
