Art and Eating Disorders is about expressing those parts of the experience of living with an eating disorder that are difficult to put into words. Creating art and reflecting on the art products and processes helps people increase awareness of self, cope with symptoms, stress and traumatic experiences; enhance cognitive abilities; and enjoy the life-affirming pleasures of making art.
The Foundation’s Art and Eating Disorders program displays artwork created through art therapy in community spaces to raise awareness about eating disorders and the individuals that are impacted by them. The artwork runs themes relating to eating disorders, recovery, and body image.
