European Consortium of Arts Therapies (ECArTE) Conference, Vilnius, Lithuania, September 2022

The home of Arts Therapies Education in Europe

ECArTE is a consortium of Universities, which was founded in 1991 and currently comprises 33 member institutions from 15 European countries. It is a non profit-making organisation. Its primary purpose is to rep­resent and encourage the development of the Arts Therapies at a European level, in particular courses offering nationally-validated and professionally-recognised education for arts therapists.

The Arts Therapies include art therapy, dance movement therapy, dramatherapy, music therapy and play therapy.

We are working towards establishing mutual recognition and compatibility in educational and vocational training for arts therapists within the European Community.
