Tails of Therapy

 

This is an art festival for the celebration of pet therapy in mental health, held by N.G.O. EDRA. Many are indeed the artists whose favorite pet has a prominent position in their work. Pets are seen as a reflection of self and the artwork serves sometimes as a tribute to the close relationship between them. Each artwork is accompanied by a photographic portrait of the artist and the animal. The exhibition hosted stories in headphones as a dierent way to present and discuss cases where animals contributed to the therapeutic procedure of people with mental health challenges. Texts, photographs and audiovisual material available to the public were shadding light to innovative programs, projects and practices around the globe.
A central happening of networking in Animal Assisted Therapy and its innovative practices, was also organised by me and took place at the venue, accompanied by a dog walk, crafts, yoga classes with animals and a treasure hunt for our pet visitors. The event is a valuable chance for new cooperations, integration of new practices by mental health professionals and organisations, as well as a source of information for the relationship between animals and humans.
