We decided to have an Art Therapy Large Group (ATLG) on the three days of the conference to create a place where all those participating in the conference could come together to engage in a reflective space. The aim was for the group to explore the interplay between ”˜Finding a Voice and Making a Mark’ and through doing so, gain a sense of their own experiential learning in relation to the conference as a whole. We hoped that participants would be able to recognise the dynamics, as they were represented and enacted in the ATLG, which shape the international profession of art therapy. The idea was that participants might experience the similarities and differences in the use of art in therapy around the world, with the purpose of harnessing these towards the development and progression of the practice of art therapy internationally.
