  • All new content offered in 8 subject tracks
    (View sessions by subject track)
  • Sessions will be broadcast live, with discussions with presenters and panelists
  • Registered attendees will have access to sessions for six months after the virtual conference

Network with Art Therapists from Around the World on a NEW Platform

While AATA has hosted virtual conferences before, this year we are using a NEW custom platform that will focus on a better, more connected attendee experience.

  • Interactive, small group discussions, including Shared Interest Groups
  • Informal “coffee-chats” to meet new people or catch up with friends and colleagues
  • Break-out sessions to ask questions of presenters

What’s Included in Your Registration

Our goal for the virtual conference is to provide a quality attendee experience through world-class continuing education programming, art-making experientials, networking events, and more.

This conference will not be your “traditional” Zoom webinar. For in-person AATA2024 attendees, the virtual conference will augment your experience in Pittsburgh. For first time attendees, this will be your opportunity to connect with presenters and panelists, as well as meet new friends or catch up with colleagues from around the globe.

Coffee not included! 

Become an Exhibitor or Sponsor

Similar to the in-person conference, the virtual conference offers organizations and art supply companies visibility through event marketing, digital platforms, and promotional materials. Our new virtual platform empowers sponsors to showcase their supplies or offerings in the Exhibit Hall, or provide live, virtual demonstrations to attendees. 

Gain distinction among the art therapy community, including art therapy practitioners, clinicians, researchers, educators, and students!
