EAST-WEST EXCHANGE OF CLINICAL PRACTICE, RESEARCH,
COMMUNITY PROJECTS AND CONTEMPORARY TRENDS
October 6-10, 2015. Hong Kong
We are creating a global community that promotes the gifts of both the east and the west through mutual respect and aesthetic reciprocity. More than 400 participants from 28 countries gathered to exchange culture, ideas, to inspire and be inspired in the flowing Tao of expressive arts.
The conference created such good energy and communication. Challenges also emerged from our global community. As we become a much more international community, one question that emerges is how do we embrace a diversity of emerging models that preserve one’s cultural identity while emphasizing the collective benefits of a global community? This will be a continuing dialogue for IEATA and its future international members. Hopefully with the Tao coming home to China, and honoring the ancient wisdom of the East, the "way" of expressive arts can evolve in a meaningful way in our struggling planet.
We hold a biennial international conference that attracts more than 400 participants and presenters from around the world.
Our FIRST CONFERENCE IN ASIA in 2015 was an amazing synthesis of international exchange, aesthetic expression, and community building. Thank you for your active participation and heartfelt support! We co-created a wonderful conference.

About Expressive Arts
The expressive arts combine the visual arts, movement, drama, music, writing and other creative processes to foster deep personal growth and community development. IEATA encourages an evolving multimodal approach within psychology, organizational development, community arts and education. By integrating the arts processes and allowing one to flow into another, we gain access to our inner resources for healing, clarity, illumination and creativity.
