Each year TAR Project chooses four artists to work with Orion Psychotherapy for a year long residency. Accepted residents receive individual and group therapy, as well Binders Gift Card, a Rolfing session with River, and free membership with C4 Atlanta and scholarship for one of their workshops. The residency will culminate in a group show featuring individual and group work. All of this is free to the Artist!
Therapy has many ranges of possibility, we hope that you see this as we do. Therapy is often for the everyday individual who wants to push further into their health, spirit, and potential. There is no diagnoses needed for this residency, just the desire to push further into your will to become.
Through monthly individual and group sessions for a year, these artists will explore therapeutic themes in their work, develop skills to use expression as a form of self-care and have direct support for their challenging life career path in the arts. Individual sessions will enable participants to develop and investigate deeper personal themes due to the confidential nature of the work.
Group sessions will occur over a 2-hour period; the first hour will serve as an open space for processed-based work while the second hour will have a more structured theme as it relates to the development of the participants’ work.
