Art Not Violence Project is a collaboration of Women's
College Hospital, the Women’s College Research Institute,
and the University of Toronto. Our aim is to create
much-needed visibility for the issue of violence,
particular, violence against women and children.
2000, Art Not Violence initiated a postcard and poster
to educate staff, patients and the public about the
pressing need to find creative solutions to end violence,
and the important role Art Therapy plays in treatment.
This institution-wide campaign featured art made
Art Therapy clients in various programs operating
within Women's College Hospital.
the inception of Art Not Violence, we have promoted
clients’ creativity while raising awareness about
the magnitude of violence’s effects on each
individual and within our society as a whole. We
also work to disseminate
information about the resources available to counteract
the problem of violence.
