About the Author

Sally Adnams Jones is Director of TransformArta and has taught art education at The University of Victoria, Canada. Her PhD research explored how survivors of the HIV/AIDs pandemic in Africa transformed through their art practice.


This global spectrum of artworks addressing public and environmental health confirms how art heals everywhere by transforming afflictions into affirmations of life, all amplified by creating in community. Sally Adnams Jones and her contributors show how every person and place makes unique and necessary contributions to the larger creation that holds us all--with art offering proof of these outcomes. -- Shaun McNiff, author of 'Art Heals', 'Art as Medicine', 'Art-Based Research' and 'Imagination in Action'
A testament to the power of imagination, the creative process and the arts for individual, community and social healing. Sally Adnams Jones brings together examples of idiosyncratic approaches while at the same time presents a broad spectrum of common perspectives. This book introduces readers to the challenges and inspirations that are inherent in socially engaged work. -- Debra Kalmanowitz, PhD, co-author of 'The Portable Studio: Art Therapy and Political Conflict' and 'Art Therapy and Political Violence: With Art, Without Illusion'
