Open Ground: Music Therapy in Collaboration and Exchange, Queen's University Belfast

9th - 11th April 2021

We are very pleased to let you know that we are planning to hold the rescheduled conference at Queen’s University Belfast from 9th – 11th April 2021. We will be running the conference as it was designed for April 2020 and we will look forward to seeing you there and spending some time together as a music therapy community.

The Conference Programming Group will be in touch with presenters towards the end of the summer to confirm details for their presentation. Whilst we understand that there may be some changes or updates to presentations, we will be scheduling the conference with the programme that was in place for April 2020. We hope that all presenters will still be able to attend, but appreciate that in some circumstances, this may no longer be possible.

Should there be spaces available for new presentations, a small call for papers will be undertaken with a specific focus upon the response of the music therapy community to the Covid 19 situation. More information about all this will follow.

Any adjustments needed to the conference will be made as more information about the ongoing Covid 19 situation is available. This will be carefully considered and delegates and presenters will be kept informed.

Best wishes,

Jonathan Cousins-Booth
