The 2019 iaedp™ Symposium is scheduled for February 7-10.
This unique art competition encourages eating disorder treatment centers, art therapists, clients, therapy groups and the general public to reflect on the perception of beauty and then design mannequin-based artworks that challenge audiences to look and see beyond the purely physical. The mannequin artwork tells an individual or collective story about how those in treatment reflected upon or rediscovered their feelings about authentic beauty.
