CMTAI's 7TH ANNUAL INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE
Movement & Other Arts Therapies: Encountering The New Normal, goes virtual this year.
CMTAI is bringing together movement and other creative arts therapists/practitioners from across continents to re-think and re-imagine the purpose, medium, and meaning of our disciplines in the context of the Covid-19 pandemic, or the 'New Normal'. As a dynamic global community, we will explore how we can contribute to mental health and well-being during the pandemic and post-pandemic era by sharing multicultural artistic approaches and tools and techniques from our praxis that address resilience-building and psychological fallouts like anxiety and depression. This year's conference will include four parallel sessions for a given time slot (a total of 28 sessions), research presentations, poster presentations, a panel discussion and virtual networking spaces.
Time: 8am to 6:30pm (IST)

Though the world lost the great musician Ghantasala Venkateshwar Rao in 1974, his daughter-in-law Parvathi Ravi Ghantasala (Bharatanatyam exponent) has been paying tribute to him through Kalapradarshini. Each year she curates a dance programme that epitomises her father-in-law’s music. This year, Kalapradarshini and the Ghantasalas honour the memory of their patriarch with an online tribute. They will award the KALAPRADARSHINI GHANTASALA PURASKAR to Dr. V Shanta (Cancer Institute, Adyar), Vani Jairam, Yamini Krishnamurthy and K.N. Ramasubramaniam. This will be followed by video broadcast of the performances of various artistes to the maestro’s songs.
