Art Therapy Initiative
by .ART Domains

The Art Therapy Initiative is a philanthropic initiative focused on raising awareness for Art Therapy as a vital need in the modern world. A portion of the revenue from the sale of .ART domains goes to support The Art Therapy Initiative and its non-profit partners.

“It's time to remember that art has a therapeutic effect and start sharing art, its practices, and impressions to begin the process of global healing and recovery."

Ulvi Kasimov, .ART Founder

Benefits of Art Therapy 

Art therapy is a recognized form of psychotherapy that uses creative processes to improve mental health, self-awareness, and personal growth. It can reduce stress and anxiety, improve communication skills, aid conflict resolution and identity exploration, and provide a sense of purpose and accomplishment. Art therapy is a versatile and powerful tool for emotional healing and personal development.

Project history

Ulvi and Reikhan Kasimovs, the founders of .ART Domains, have always been active philanthropists, having supported several initiatives including the Jerusalem-based Shalva, an organisation dedicated to the provision of transformative care for individuals with disabilities, the empowerment of their families and the promotion of social inclusion.

Activities

At the 2023 American Alliance of Museums Expo, .ART held a session "Art Therapy in Museums: Unlocking Mental Wellness for Communities & Beyond", led by Heidi Bardot from George Washington University. The session explored innovative ways to weave Art Therapy into museum experiences, boosting mental well-being for all. A key exercise had attendees draw their emotional responses to an artwork, highlighting the power of non-verbal self-expression. Join us as we continue to delve into Art Therapy's transformative potential in museums and beyond.
