Choice for Voice: Crossing boundaries in voice
Virtual 3-day conference: 3-5th September 2021
The British Voice Association (BVA) is delighted to announce, 'Choice For Voice' Online; its first 3-day voice conference in 10 years. The theme of the conference is 'Crossing Boundaries in Voice', with an emphasis on multidisciplinary approaches to health, performance, and research in the field of voice. In particular we are keen to shine a light on research and practice that acknowledges the holistic nature of voice use, as well as on those who draw upon other fields of practice in order to inform and enhance their own. Key areas for discussion include; physical and mental wellbeing for voice users, voice and the workplace, and crossing genre boundaries in pedagogy and performance.
World Voice Day: 16th April every year
