Online World Congress of Music Therapy - The Polyrhythms of Music Therapy

As you are aware, due to the global Covid-19 pandemic, the in-person World Congress of Music Therapy is converting to an online congress which will take place on 7 and 8 July 2020.

The theme, Polyrhythms of Music Therapy, remains integral to the congress programme and is expressed through a diverse range of programme offerings representative of the global music therapy community. Various forms of music therapy practice from across the world will be showcased.

Two daily spotlight sessions and a student seminar will also be featured as highlights of the programme, each providing a virtual interactive experience. Several of the previously billed pre-congress seminars will now be integrated into the main congress programme.

The cancellation of the congress comes with many challenges given the global crisis we face. We are aware that the Covid-19 pandemic is impacting everyone financially and we have thus substantially reduced the rate for the online congress.

Important to note is that registration for the online congress entitles you to have access to ALL the presentations for a month after the congress.

Please see the Categories for Registration Tab for more information regarding fees.

Online Registration for NEW registrations opens 8 April 2020.

Those who have already registered and paid for the congress will automatically have their registration converted to an online registration at the reduced rate. All delegates who registered for the in-person event will receive an emailing detailing the registration conversion and reimbursement information.

We invite you to be a part of this exciting event as the global community of music therapists gather to celebrate the profession in this novel way. During this surreal season of physical distancing, isolation and not-knowing, may we remain committed to connection, sharing, listening and supporting.
