Music, Health, and the Community: Catalyzing Research on Community-based Music Programs for Health

May 21-24, 2024, at The Royal Mental Health Center

In May 2024, the Institute for Research on Music and Health and its partners will offer a comprehensive series of outreach and knowledge mobilization activities on community-based music practices and their benefits for health and well-being. This national multidisciplinary initiative will bring together leading researchers and students from across Canada in the fields of music education, neuroscience, psychology, social sciences, health sciences and medicine, as well as music educators, health practitioners and people with lived experience. The aim is to explore how the different disciplines and partners can work together to shape this emerging field, encourage a wider audience to take an interest in this research, and create new long-term links with stakeholders to promote collaborative work.
