BAMT Conference 2016

Re-Visioning our Voice: Resourcing music therapy for contemporary needs

April 2016, Glasgow

The healthcare landscape in the UK, and beyond, has been in flux for some time. Like many arts-based, health-related professions, it is time for music therapists to reconsider our voice, our value, and our public profile.

The BAMT 2016 Conference seeks to explore how music therapists might develop practices, articulate music therapy visions, values and professional currencies, and better engage with the demands, needs and expectations of service users, commissioners, funders, and the health professions at large. How might we re-vision our practice-discourses, our 'voice'?

The conference will welcome presentations and workshops from all areas of music therapy practice:local, regional, national and international. We hope that music therapists, commissioners, funders, and other professionals, will emerge from the conference better informed, networked, and more confident and courageous in engaging with the contemporary funding and professional landscapes.

Date: 8 – 10 April 2016

Venue: Technology & Innovation Centre, University of Strathclyde, Glasgow
