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 brings 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? The two days are designed to be complete in themselves but more fulfilling if taken as a whole.
