SIGNING OF NOTARIAL DEED
We are proud the announce that the notarial deed for the constitution of the European Federation of Art Therapy (EFAT) has been signed in Brussels on Thursday, 12th April 2018 by art therapists from 27 different European countries. A significant step towards greater collaboration and learning across the field.
EFAT has been officially registered as an International Non-Profit Association (AiSBL) after obtaining the royal decree signed by the Belgian King on 15th July 2018 . The temporary Board of EFAT, which will step down to make way for democratic elections at the first General Assembly in 2019, and EFAT's committees continue to work for the realization of a functioning organization.
We hope to begin member intake by early 2019. Please sign up for regular updates!
FROM NEAT TO EFAT
A Network of European Art Therapist was the stepping stone for the foundation of this European Federation. Created in 2011, through the initiative of Paola Luzzatto, this network of driven individuals worked together to get to this point... and will continue to foster the development of EFAT.
