3 February International Week Day 2
Check out the program of the HAN International Week Health and Social Studies on day 2, Thursday the 3rd of February 2022.
The powerful experience
Arts and psychomotor therapies is an experience-based field that uses tools like drama, dance, images, exercise, movement and music. These tools can help people with personality disorders engage with their emotions. And can help others connect with them on an emotional level. Dr. Suzanne Haeyen, professor in arts therapies, introduces the use of these therapies within this target group and the contributions this new field of research can make. There is a considerable need for more knowledge - theoretical, scientific and practical. She covers important themes, topics for research and recent studies.
Community builder in Sierra Leone

Symposium Centre for Creativity: Kairos, Art and Sustainability
This afternoon symposium with 3 key note lectures is organized by the HAN Centre for Creativity. The event will be chaired by Erik Jansen, associate professor of Capabilities in Care and Wellbeing at HAN. Still amidst the Covid-19 pandemic, the world is awaiting an even more pervasive crisis involving the climate and sustainability of our planet. While the anthropogenic nature of the climate crisis is undeniably true, humanity has a hard time dealing with the consequences and redirecting the course to a more sustainable one. Some scholars argue that this is due to our ways with nature and the world. Our lives are led by Chronos, economic time and a logic of having, at the expense of Kairos, experiential time and a logic of being.
