Making-sense of Poietic Presense in Arts Therapy and Education

Abstract

In this arts-based living inquiry, I attempt to make-sense of my orientation towards poiesis and presense as an a/r/t/s-based practitioner – where I disrupt the word ‘a/r/t/s’ to illuminate my roles as artist / researcher / therapist and teacher / and supervisor. I indwell with several personal hauntings that feel relevant and use story-telling, arts-making, poetic writing and conversations with relevant authors to read the bones that scaffold my practice of poietic presense.
