International Expressive Arts Spring Symposium 2018 in Berlin, Germany


The International Network of Expressive Arts Training Institutes warmly invites and welcomes colleagues, students and interested practitioners from all over the world to the 31.Expressive Arts Spring Symposium in Berlin.

The theme:

Art as a liberating Act 

“I set the foot upon the air, and it carried” 1

Hilde Domin


In the art making we constantly set our foot into the not - knowing. 

What is it that is holding us there? And how can we encourage others to step into that air? In our liveswe all experience moving into unknown territory as well. As we walk along, literally and metaphorically, one foot always leaves the ground and allows us to turn into a new direction through that moment of elevation in the air. How can Expressive Arts as an act of liberation be a carrying ground here? 

The Symposium will give an opportunity to explore these questions creatively and seek for the moments of freedom in the unexpected of the arts. Hilde Domins’ poetry and life will hereby serve as an inspiration for the trust in the landing


1 “Ich setzte den Fuß in die Luft, und sie trug.“
