WELCOME TO THE 17TH WORLD CONGRESS OF MUSIC THERAPY
Hello, Bonjour, and greetings!
My name is Joel Klassen, I’m president of the Canadian Association of Music Therapists, and I’m speaking to you from the longitudinal centre of this land known as Canada.
Music therapists from across our 6 time zones are thrilled to welcome YOU to the 17th World Congress of Music Therapy, in Vancouver, Canada, coming up in July 2023!
The planning committee has been busy crafting the ideal experience for you, whether this will be your first or your tenth Congress. And the scientific committee has worked hard to create an engaging and enriching program for you. The focus will be on the reflection, connection and innovation that we are all called to as music therapists in a global community. Spotlighted speakers will include Rika Ikuno, Monika Geretsegger, Natalie Jack, Mark Ettenberger, Sue Baines, Cynthia Bruce, and many more.
The city of Vancouver is bursting with cultural variety, and during Congress you’ll have the chance to join some amazing guided tours, including the Dr. Sun Yat Sen Ming Dynasty Garden; a world famous craft beer market; and the iconic Capilano Suspension Bridge.
