“Architects design the spaces in which we live and work, celebrate and remember, work and compete.  Psychoanalysts focus on our unique inner lives-the freedom to dream, think, create, and feel.  But what about the interaction of these two—internal and external space? Our speakers—architects and analysts—will expose us to the intricate challenges of their work.  Together we will consider how, simultaneously, the self is expressed through the structures we create and is shaped by the structures we inhabit.”

“How does not belonging affect the quality or quantity of an individual’s creative output?  How does creating and/or the recognition of one’s creativity affect inclusion? Since creating has been said to involve putting one’s innermost self out there, are belonging and creating paradoxical bedfellows or mutually exclusive?  Or, if both, how can we understand their relationship? Also, what difference does it make if an individual is marginalized by choice or by being cast out? This conference will pursue these issues and more with the astute input of psychoanalysts and artists, as well as our insightful and talented audience.”
