UN-Conference

If you haven’t already seen, the University of Louisville Music Therapy Department is hosting a free, collaborative virtual CMTE eligible event on 10/14/2022 from 10am-4pm EST titled the UN-conference! In lieu of our national conference this year, we wanted to celebrate music therapists by offering a free chance to engage meaningfully with some of the best minds we know in music therapy! The UN-conference is different than a regular conference (virtual or not) because it values open-access sharing of information, pre-reading on topics / discussions, and then on the day-of our discussion leaders [instead of the traditional presentation style] will engage participants in robust discussions / workshops that are aimed directly at how you can apply their areas of expertise directly to your practice / life!

We already have music therapists, students, and interns from around the world already registered to attend or receive the asynchronous playback! We’d love for you to register and share with your network.

Attached is more information if you’d like to review including the schedule, discussion leaders, and how to receive CMTE credit (two options). Below is the event details in a snapshot:
