Creating a Culture of Connection: A Postmodern Punk Rock Approach to Art Therapy
Drass, Jessica Masino
Art Therapy: Journal of the American Art Therapy Association, v33 n3 p138-143 2016
Punk culture is based on an ideology that emphasizes questioning conformity and creating a space for individuality within community. It has inspired fans to create their own music and art as part of their quest for authenticity. Art therapy informed by punk culture can be a way to create a culture of connection while also building resiliency and instilling hope through core concepts of collapse of hierarchy, a search for authenticity and understanding, deconstruction/reconstruction, and empowerment through a DIY mindset. In this article the author illustrates firsthand experiences with punk rock culture and postmodern art and describes how they inform her art therapy practice.
