Roles and Responsibilities of Global Representatives 

Our Global Representatives play an important role in raising awareness of ECArTE’s aims and activities in countries across the world, which are not already represented by a Full, Associate or Partner ECArTE Member Representative.

Global Representatives are ambassadors for ECArTE and the official contact persons for the Consortium in the geographical regions which they represent.

Global and Regional Representatives should subscribe to the mission and aims of the Consortium, as presented on the official website

Main responsibilities:

These may include, but are not limited to the following:

  • developing opportunities to make known the work of ECArTE to groups and individuals, training institutions, professional bodies and agencies associated with the arts therapies in your region
  • building a regional list of contacts for the promotion of ECArTE conferences to arts therapists, arts therapy trainees and professionals from associated disciplines – alerting them to calls for papers and booking arrangements
  • liaising with the ECArTE Administrator to receive promotional information and forwarding enquiries as appropriate ( email: )
  • (for those attending an ECArTE conference) identifying and greeting delegates from your region and providing introductions into the wider ECArTE conference community
  • acting as contact person to ECArTE editorial groups to promote writers from your region 
  • acting as a contact person through the year to the Board, reporting on arts therapy developments, concerns and issues in your region
  • serving a four-year term, which is renewable by invitation



The line of communication for Global Representatives is directly to and from the Honorary President of ECArTE, who liaises closely with the Executive Board on all matters relating to global representation for the Consortium.

Representatives are asked to report briefly on the work they have carried out for the Consortium once each year (by end of February) and are invited to share first-hand knowledge of developments in arts therapy and arts therapy education in their region on the ECArTE website.


Global Representatives are appointed by the Executive Board of ECArTE by invitation.

Reduced Conference fee

A Global Representative is offered a reduced-rate place at ECArTE conferences during his/her term of office.

Additional advantages

Names of the Global Representatives will be included in the Conference Handbook and on the ECArTE website. This is an official position within the Consortium, which you may include on your CV and other relevant documents.
