International Conference of Arts and Health (ICAH): Sino European Summit

Presented by: Chinese Adult Education Association, CAET journal

Venue: Amsterdam, the Netherlands

Date: May 7-9, 2018

Art Education Committee/Chinese Adult Education Association and CAET journal are proud to announce its first International Conference of Arts and Health (ICAH) to be held in Amsterdam in 2018.  The Sino-Europe Summit will also kick off within ICAH, highlighting the art and culture exchange between China and Europe/The Netherlands in 2018. The rapid economic development and social transformation in China has been accompanied by the hugely increased need for art education in the country. The rethinking of the role arts play beyond performance helps us to consider the other functions of arts in different arenas, among them is health. Arts, as the creative activities of human beings, help us to reach and explore our unconscious and link our rational and emotional mind. Arts, like nature, are supposed to be healing for body and soul, facilitating personal growth and development, and thus promoting well being of the whole person.  Current health and medical systems also call for more humanistic approaches, as Prince Charles advocated in his speech on Integrated Health and Post Modern Medicine in 2012.

The first ICAH will bring the experts and leaders from both China and Europe for a dialogue over the arts and health in modern society from different perspectives: Eastern and Western, Art and Science. Keynotes, workshops and special exhibitions will be presented and involve professionals and the public in this 3-day event.

ICAH will be held alternately between China and Europe or US.  It is supported by Art Education Committee, Chinese Adult Education Association, Chinese Ministry of Education and the counterpart local government of the hosting country.  The Netherlands with expertise in healthcare system and its tradition in art innovation will be the first country to host for ICAH.  It will offer the participating guests from China and other countries great opportunity to integrate the experiences and knowledge from the West and East.
