The arts are an effective tool in processing adversity. The following video documents an out reach activity whose purpose was to increase the accessibility and use of research knowledge concerning the psychological and social benefits of art-making. This outreach promoted the use of art therapy in a tertiary care cancer centre. By establishing a permanent exhibition space in the hospital, the project also sponsored art exhibitions of creative work, done by individuals living through cancer, in various locations around Montreal. An important part of the exhibitions were opportunities for the public to make art.
