MEMORY Shaping Connections in the Arts Therapies
ATMINTIES atspindžiai menų terapijose
16th European Arts Therapies Conference
September 22nd to 25th September 2021
Vilnius University, Vilnius Academy of Arts, Lithuania
Conference 2021 Keynote
We are delighted to announce Doris Salcado as our Conference Keynote Speaker
Doris Salcedo makes sculptures and installations that function as political and mental archaeology, using domestic materials charged with significance and suffused with meanings accumulated over years of use in everyday life. Salcedo often takes specific historical events as her point of departure, conveying burdens and conflicts with precise and economical means.
Salcedo was the recipient of the 2020 inaugural Nomura art prize and also received the 2019 Possehl Prize for International Art; Rolf Schock Prize in the Visual Arts (2017); Nasher Sculpture Prize (2015).
The ECArTE conference this September is still planned to happen
in Vilnius, Lithuania.
The Conference Directors are pulling together what looks to be a fascinating programme of keynotes, paper presentations, workshops, masterclasses and panels.
We are also mindful of the unknowns which may play out this year as a result of the pandemic. Whilst we hope that the conference will be able to take place in person, we are also contingency planning.
In light of the above please note:
The conference directors continue to monitor national and international public health guidelines which may impact the conference;
We are working closely with Vilnius University, Vilnius Art Academy and Vilnius Academy of Music and Theatre in discussing local provision and guidelines;
A new fee structure is being considered if the overall conditions do not improve, which will enable delegates to access some of the conference events online;
A full refund will be available up to two weeks before the conference takes place.
Please do keep an eye on this website for updates.
