A collaborative art project by 10 art therapists by profession and artists in their arena. What brought them together is the clinical population they work with in their respective palliative and hospice care organisations. Journeying with their patients through art therapy has taught them many things and deeply humbled them. In facing the end of life, what signifies a “BIG” matter and a “small” matter differs for everyone. A seemingly small daily hug from mom and dad was the BIG thing a young child longed for each day. Expressing being free, running among the trees through artmaking brought great comfort to a person who had been bed-bound since hospitalisation. Saying “I love you” in an artwork for her teenage daughter was the most important thing to a mother, who passed on two days later, upon completing the masterpiece. Often, patients reflect about their lives… Once upon a time, they arrived in this world with nothing. As they grew, they accumulated BIG and small things, things that could be physical, emotional, spiritual, or philosophical. They lived their lives discovering, pondering and struggling at times, holding on to something and letting go of others. At the end of their journey, they enter the quiet space of profound self-reflection. Taking the perspectives of their patients, imbued with personal reflections, each artist (and art therapist) immerses in an unending creative artmaking process - a journey to discover, uncover, connect, internalise, hold, regulate, and, more importantly, to share. The result is a series of artworks and installations exploring the human intrinsic need to belong, to be acknowledged, to play, to love and be loved, to be remembered, to hold and be held.
