Emotional Learning Cards

Contemporary art cards for stimulating creative exploration


Iniva’s Emotional Learning Cards occupy a leading position in the growing fields of emotional learning and psychological therapies. Our cards encourage emotional literacy, support and critique ‘meaning-making’ as well as challenging often stereotypical ideas about who makes art and what its purpose might be.

Each of our seven boxed sets of Emotional Learning Cards highlight specific themes designed to facilitate a better understanding of what makes us who we are and how we make sense of our experiences, bringing together the artwork of international contemporary artists with therapeutic commentary and questions.

We move beyond commonly explored subjects by branching into discussion relating to difference, diversity, outsider / insider experiences, and how past histories (both personal and collective) shape the present. Using art as a starting point, the cards help facilitators and educators open up difficult conversations on challenging feelings, and complex family or cultural experiences. By openly exploring less talked about feelings and thoughts engendered by the artworks, we re-frame them as common to the human family, to be shared and thought about rather than labelled as embarrassing or shameful and denied or hidden away.
