The artwork for the 2016 Conference in Seattle has been chosen!

Cleopatra Bertelsen's rendition of Sunshine Under the Umbrella evokes an image of a group playing together under a parachute; interconnected with each other and the collective whole, through the power of a circle. The 'sunshine' in this image is the healing light that comes from within the individuals and is magnified collectively from the group playing 'under the umbrella' of drama therapy. Together, we are the infinite light.

We think this fits nicely with this year's theme:

The Power of Dramatic Play and Creativity:
Sunshine Under the Umbrella

You can discover more about a person in an hour of play than in a year of conversation. ~ Plato
