Creative Arts Therapies Conference

The Irish Association of Creative Arts Therapists International Conference will give a unique platform to showcase collaborative approaches and innovative practice in the creative arts therapies. 

The IACAT international conference taking place on Thursday 30 June in the Cork School of Music will inform and engage on the theme of collaboration and innovation in the creative arts therapies through presentations, case studies and workshops which are aimed at benefitting service providers, professionals working in the Health and Education/Community sectors as well as those individuals wanting to know more about the Creative Arts Therapies. 

Speakers will include Cork ARC's Director of Services, Ellen Joyce, and Cork ARC's Art Therapist, June Fitzgerald. At Cork ARC Cancer Support House, our visitors are encouraged to engage with Art Therapy as a means of expressing the sometimes difficult feelings associated with a cancer diagnosis in a safe and confidential space. 

Organised by the IACAT South Group, a regional group of members of the Irish Association of Creative Arts Therapists consisting of Art Therapists, Music Therapists, Drama & Movement Therapists, Drama Therapists & Dance Therapists. The group regularly arranges CPD events for its members as well as more public events to promote the role of the Creative Therapies in a range of health, educational and social settings.

Art Therapy at Cork ARC Cancer Support House

Art therapy helps you express your feelings in a safe and gentle way using a range of art materials. The good news is you don’t need to be able to draw or paint. 

With the support and sensitivity of our Art Therapist you can safely express and work through these sometimes difficult feelings in a safe and confidential space. One to one or group Art Therapy is run with respect and confidentiality in a non-threatening way. 

June Fitzgerald has been working as an Art Therapist for over ten years and is passionate about the healing capacity of Art Therapy. To find out more about our Art Therapy service, which is available free of charge, please contact us on 021 427 6688 /
