Unbound, a multidisciplinary creative arts experience that took place at DSH-Napa in 2022. The experience created a first-time opportunity for forensic, psychiatric patients to be filmed in DMT groups. It also included a group art making experience which included artists from inside the hospital and from the community at large, as well as a musical experience and an original patient-written song. Presenters will discuss how participation in this movement experience of being seen increased feelings of belonging among participants and helped to foster an atmosphere of inclusivity. Relevant research will be presented and discussed along with implications for future projects.
