Art Conference Convenes Community Service Project at Sacramento Convention Center

American Art Therapy Association

Art is food for the soul...
but art therapists also know food is good for hungry families.

During its 41st annual conference (Nov. 3-7), American Art Therapy Association is working with the Sacramento Food Bank & Family Services. Conference attendees are encouraged to contribute 
non-perishable food items for local families in need.

In addition,
delegates are invited to loan their creativity to help create a sculpture from boxed, canned and packaged donations. The public display will raise awareness about community service, art therapy, and performance art.

People who live and/or work in downtown and midtown Sacramento are welcome to participate. Simply bring non-perishable food gifts to the Sacramento Convention Center (1400 J Street, Sacramento, CA 95814) through Nov. 7. Special thanks to Robin Valicenti for coordinating.

The Sacramento Convention & Visitors Bureau helps out-of-town visitors give back to the global community we share. Local service projects build camaraderie among conference attendees, and create a unique memory of the host city. If you are a meeting planner who is interested in voluntourism, visit to learn more.
