2013 Conference - Mansion House, London (Friday 28 & Saturday 29 June)
Click HERE to watch the conference on Youtube.
Throughout recorded history music has accompanied soldiers marching to war, but it has also mourned their loss and attempted to help survivors come to terms with the devastation that ensues.
In partnership with the City of London Festival.
This two-day conference brought together musicians, music therapists, arts practitioners, psychiatrists, neuroscientists, historians and soldiers to address important questions. What is the relationship between art and war? What have been the responses of artists to post-traumatic stress disorder? Is human creativity itself therapeutic?
