Description

What if you could reimagine your body part and transform it into a unique piece of art that expresses who you are?

We use Creative Art Therapies to reimagine the body and to change the way individuals think about their prosthetic limb. Finding a positive meaning in the loss of a limb becomes a powerful process for recovery, channelling their energy in a different way and changing mindsets from can’t to can!

We are connecting local artists and muralists under the guidance of our Art Therapists to merge the latest technology in transferring art images created onto artificial limbs.

This art process allows people of limb difference to infuse personality into their artificial limb.  Creative Art Therapy sessions with qualified Art Therapists explore themes of body image, associated anxiety, modification, development, public self-consciousness, depression, bullying, and grief of loss.  The process encourages positive dialogue and celebration around body diversity.

Our Creative Art Therapy processes see people release, explore and celebrate themselves with their prosthetic limb. Allowing them to be their authentic self, where their physical appearance becomes a form of self-expression. Our goal is to demonstrate, through art, how a prosthetic is an extension of one's personality, rather than a replacement of what of missing.
