Post-congress package

Thank you for showing interest in the 16th World Congress of Music Therapy hosted online from South Africa.

We reached capacity shortly before the start of the event which was not expected. Unfortunately our online platform had a limit of 1000 delegates and we could not increase the seats.

There has since been a great demand for the recordings/presentations to be made available for those who were not able to attend the live event. This was not part of our original vision and took some time to plan. We thank you for your patience in this regard.


We are now very excited to announce the launch of our post-congress package!


Whilst you missed out on the live event, which boasted an exciting opening and closing ceremony, interacting live in the space with presenters, as well being able to interact with other fellow music therapists  in the interactive chat, this package still allows for you to access a full library of recorded webinars for you to view in your own time. 

We would like to offer you a package where you are able to view:

Recordings of the opening and closing ceremonies

4 spotlight sessions

1 student seminar

198 presentations (in the form of paper presentations, round tables and workshops varying from 30 minutes to 1 hour in length)

43 professional posters

21 student posters.


The post-congress package will be available from 23 July - 31 August.




Post-congress international: R1000

Post-congress local and developing countries: R500

Post-congress student: R300
