Choice for Voice : Crossing boundaries in voice

Choice for Voice : Crossing boundaries in voice

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.

The event will feature over 40 hours of lectures, workshops and masterclasses from some of the world’s top practitioners, working in the field of voice. Delegates will also be able to network and schedule meetings with one another from within the platform and meet virtually with exhibitors from around the world.

The VIRTUAL BLA Annual Conference 2021

The VIRTUAL BLA Annual Conference 2021

The last 12 months have been eventful to say the least! 

Self isolation, Covid-19, working from home and endless zoom meetings have had a significant impact on the health of our larynxes.

Join our expert panel discussing all aspects of voice, swallowing and airway pathology in the Covid-19 era."
