IACAET East-West Dialogue Series

Stabilization - Breakthrough - Resilience through the Arts

IACAET 东西对话系列: 稳定与破局 –艺术康复 艺术·身心·生命系列(第六季)

As the world continues to adapt and live with Covid-19, we are entering a post pandemic age. Challenges continue to emerge ever clearer – global conflict/war, inflation, climate change, food and water shortages threaten the entire human race. Each of us must deal with ever increasing uncertainties, instability and changes every moment of every day.

Now more than ever, we need novel and creative ideas and actions to assist us in finding balance and stability. Similar to the Chinese symbols of duality, yin and yang, finding a balance between 'structure of stability' while also longing for 'breakthrough and freedom' become a delicate possibility. In this series, we will explore and foster a 'dialogue in action' between Eastern & Western thought regarding how we can use the arts to create new symbols and dance and transform creatively between the dualities, to stabilize ourselves and find a pathway for breakthrough in these challenging times.

This series is presented by the IACAET China Regional Chapter. Our Chinese colleagues will curate and host the sessions in dialogue with our international speakers. These dialogues will search for common ground between East-West in dealing with our current global challenges, reflecting on how we can be empowered by the arts to heighten our social responsibility as professional educators, therapists, researchers and leaders in related fields.

Nurturing Compassion in Leadership through the Arts

Time: 8-9:30am New York / 1-2:30pm London / 8:00-9:30pm Beijing, October 16, 2022

The world is experiencing great turmoil now- the pandemic, war, economic/energy/food crisis cast huge challenges on nations as well as individuals. Now more than ever there is a call for leadership to address these challenges in new and effective ways. Can the arts contribute towards this search for novel directions? Integrating an 'arts attitude' in leadership can include leading organizations, developing a strong sense of responsibility in community, for ourselves, and the environment. The arts facilitate compassion and creativity within leadership and can influence mission and vision.

In this 1.5 hr. interactive seminar, Dr. Phillip Speiser, will share stories from his forty years of international experience, having worked and lived in different parts of the world including Scandinavia, Middle East, North America and Africa. As an international speaker, university lecturer and leader of international organizations including IEATA and IACAET, Phillip is passionate about the arts, human understanding and developing international cooperation that transcends disciplines and regions via arts-based leadership. His mentorship and support of younger generations of students and colleagues is filled with compassion and care. He will share his rich experience and knowledge of leading through the arts and professional career development.

This webinar will be curated by and in dialogue with Chinese colleagues and consists of lecture, experiential activity and Q&A.

There is English-Chinese translation for this webinar which will be recorded and accessed by all IACAET members.
