These cards provide images of contemporary art that support people of all ages to gain deeper insights into their identity, backgrounds, values and attitudes. Together with questions and ideas, it is particularly valuable for those coping with change and transition. 

Who are you? Where are you going? features artworks by culturally diverse and international artists, together with questions and prompts which stimulate activity and discussion around the themes of identity and transition.

People’s identities are ever changing and are rooted in social, emotional and cultural histories. They are revealed or hidden in our personal and cultural belief systems, values and attitudes. Mapping emotional and social histories can provide us with deeper insights into who we are and where we come from, a process which provides us with greater self understanding and increased agency over where we are going.Each artwork in this boxed set has been carefully selected to deepen and widen understanding of the themes explored within the resource. The artists and images reflect a range of different cultural backgrounds, making the cards particularly useful for developing understanding around diversity and multiculturalism.

What people say

"We were struck by how the ambiguity and unusualness of the images could provoke conversation and tangents of thought." - Feedback from user fiasco
"The cards are beautiful, very useful to facilitate conversations and as part of a group exercise." - Dr Jo Allen fiasco
"They offer an exciting and refreshing way of reading images." - Aesthetica magazine fiasco
"I frequently use the Emotional Learning Cards in Art Therapy assessment sessions. They facilitate clients to talk about themselves when the therapeutic relationship is not established yet and making a mark on a “blank canvas” can seem so daunting. The cards inspire interesting conversations and help pull out important themes that may guide the sessions thereafter. A very useful tool to have in the therapy room." - Diana Kagiafa (Art Psychotherapist, Trinity Hospice & Sessional lecturer, Goldsmiths College, MA in Art Psychotherapy) fiasco
"These cards effectively combine thought-provoking contemporary art images with stimulating questions that highlight themes relating to social identity, gender and the meanings we give to our experiences." - Diane Waller OBE (Professor of Art Psychotherapy) fiasco
"I have been using these cards with an 11 year old child, who struggles to communicate her feelings. The cards have proven a great resource in opening up conversations and providing insight into her wishes and feelings to inform a Child Protection Plan." - Family Therapist, Hackney Social Care, London fiasco
"The most amazing asset in the counseling room - worth their weight in gold!" - Cathie Farthing (Head of Psychology, Queen Anne's School) fiasco
“The quality of the images and the design make the A-Z of Leadership an extremely valuable resource. The cards create a 'way in' to various topics and can be used time and again to explore a range of leadership themes and related issues. Effective dialogue and communication are essential for leadership success whether at home, in our social life or in the workplace - these cards help to facilitate this in a unique and powerful way.” - Prue Barnes-Kemp, Executive Head Teacher, Head of the Virtual Leadership Academy, Essex & Educational Consultant fiasco
