CRPD Article 30 Participation in cultural life, recreation, leisure and sport 


What do you think of Art?

A majestic sculpture? A beautiful painting? Van Gogh’s portrait?

Maybe, there is no definition of Art, neither "good" or "bad" Art.

People around the world make Art to release feelings, communicate with others, and heal the sick.

We can see the creative process of making art to express a person’s physical, mental, and emotional well-being.

Through art materials, a safe and perfect space, artists create images to express themselves wonderfully.

Actually, it's the meaning of Art Therapy.

Art Therapy is a profession that combines creative artistic expression with psychotherapy.

Eden invited New Life HK (香港新生精神康復會) and CCCD (香港社區文化發展中心) to held Art Therapy Workshop, hoping that Eden’s workers can experience different kinds of the Art Therapy classes; moreover, can connect the workshops to the teaching lessons of people with disabilities.

Eden International hopes that employees planning to design classes for people with disabilities, they can more activate the content of the class and enrich the curriculum after the Art Therapy Workshop. Let people with disabilities use the right means to express themselves, communicate with others, and release their body and mind.

For people with disabilities, their personal feelings, potentials, and subconscious can be discovered by Art Therapy. Besides, Art Therapy can help them understand themselves, reconcile their emotions, improve social skills, and enhance personal development etc.


Through Art Therapy, those who attend the workshop, dance in the crowd beautifully. All we can see on their face is confidence and pleasure.
