The 11th International Expressive Arts Therapy Association Conference

Dear Friends,

You are cordially invited to,

The 11th International Expressive Arts Therapy Association Conference – The Flowing Tao of Expressive Arts

The 11th International Expressive Arts Therapy Association (IEATA) Conference is being held for the first time in Asia. It includes two 1-day pre-conference workshops on October 6-7 and the 3-day main conference on October 8-10, 2015 at the Wu Kwai Sha Youth Village, Hong Kong. It is co-hosted by IEATA and Art in Hospital. The Hong Kong Association of Art Therapists is one of our silver sponsors.

Expressive arts therapy embraces all art-based practices in an integrated and inclusive way. Each individual’s potential for creating is respected. We believe that art can energize, empower, and promote social changes. It is a profession, an academic subject, a working formulation, an arts-based intervention and simply a way of life.

Hundreds of participants will come from nearly 15 countries, including Japan, Nepal, India, Korea, Singapore, Hong Kong, the U.S. and South America. You can learn what is happening in the expressive arts in Asia as well as meet some of the world-renowned practitioners. We encourage East-West exchanges of different philosophies and methodologies across cultures.

The 5-day program features over 100 events, including keynote, workshops, agency visits, cultural events, presentation and experiential sessions, open studios, artist projects and performances. There are different platforms for networking, exchange and co-creation.

You will learn how to apply expressive arts in individual counseling, group work, community development, and social advocacy through theory, research, and clinical practice. Then you will be able to enhance yourself and others on personal, professional and societal level. If you are interested in applying arts in your work or pursuing your pathway to be an expressive arts therapist/educator, don’t miss this amazing opportunity.
