Music, Diversity and Wholeness

February 2018, London

Call for Abstracts now open 

The BAMT Conference Committee is pleased to announce the call for abstracts is now open. 

The conference in 2018 aims will look within and beyond music therapy to explore and celebrate diversity in practices, synergies and thinking. By focusing on processes which relate to both diversity and wholeness, all areas of the lifespan can be covered. Experiential music will be to the fore so there will be plenty of space for workshops as well as a musical festival on Saturday evening. The conference also aims to foreground technology as a fast changing influence.

Submissions are now invited from all areas of music therapy practice, research and theory: local, regional, national and international, as well as from commissioners, technologists, funders, public bodies, and diverse others engaging with music therapy practice.
