Under the leadership of Norman N. Holland, the PsyArt Foundation began in January 1993. It supports psychological and psychoanalytic approaches to the study of the arts, including literature, film, and the fine arts. The Foundation’s mission is to provide a forum for three main activities:
First, it maintains an email list and Members page (under construction) for the exchange of ideas and information about psychology and psychoanalysis. The list currently has about 900 subscribers from more than fifty countries.
Second, it hosts a peer-reviewed online journal–the PsyArt Journal–devoted to psychological and psychoanalytic studies of the arts.
Finally, PsyArt organizes an annual international conference.
