INDIGENOUS ROOTS OF EXPRESSIVE ARTS
Transformation, Social Justice and Social Change
The International Expressive Arts Therapy Association (IEATA) and the Winnipeg Holistic Expressive Arts Therapy Institute (WHEAT) collaborated to co-host the IEATA 12th Biennial Conference. It was held in Winnipeg, Canada, traditional territories of the Anishinaabe, Nehiyawak/Ininowak, Dakotah and the Homeland of the Metis Nations. This was a groundbreaking opportunity to dialogue, create, and celebrate our Indigenous roots and move forward collaboratively to promote healing through the arts. Find out more about the conference.
