About WCMT 2023

The World Congress of Music Therapy is held every three years. Music therapy professionals and experts in related fields from around the world gather at the congress to share ideas, experiences, trends, and research outcomes. The World Congress of Music Therapy is hosted by a WFMT organizational member in conjunction with a local host. The site of each congress is determined by a bid process undertaken by the WFMT Council six years in advance. The Federation makes an effort to circulate the location of the congresses among the eight regions. WFMT members who would like to host a World Congress should contact the WFMT Past President to request proposal details.
