The International Expressive Arts Therapy Association (IEATA) and the Winnipeg Holistic Expressive Arts Therapy Institute (WHEAT) are collaborating to co-host the IEATA 12th Bi-Annual Conference – “Indigenous Roots Of Expressive Arts Therapy: Transformation, Social Justice and Social Change – Globally and Locally”, October 4th-8th, 2017.
This conference will allow participants an experiential engagement in the Indigenous Roots of the Expressive Arts. Pre-conference days will feature opportunities to explore local Indigenous cultures, history, and teachings on the land, as well as workshops on arts-based cross-cultural dialogue and healing.
The conference will feature expert keynote presenters and various plenary workshops highlighting developing knowledge in the area, outstanding initiatives, and innovative programming. This conference will be of particular interest to therapists, teachers, artists, social workers, psychologists, social service agency workers, politicians, social justice advocates, and anyone interested in creating a more ethical, healthy and socially conscious community.
Please join us for this groundbreaking opportunity to dialogue, create, and celebrate our Indigenous roots and move forward collaboratively to promote healing through the arts.
