In current arts and health research and clinical experiences, participants and patients frequently reflect on there being little or no room in their lives for creative self-expression. Portals highlights how art making can be a portal to: learning about ourselves, enhancing physiological and psychological well-being, enabling interpersonal communication, and helping us visually say the ‘unsayable.’ This artistic metaphor of the portal, when practiced with authenticity, has the potential to connect across demographic differences, disparities, and abilities, serving as a refuge and sanctuary for the human condition.
