The Mid-Atlantic Region of the American Music Therapy Association seeks to acknowledge and repair the oppressive structures placed upon our historically marginalized music therapy colleagues and students. With this in mind, we are providing compensation in the form of free conference registration for historically marginalized music therapy members. We recognize the emotional labor required in both constructing and presenting these sessions. To receive this free conference registration:
Individuals must be from a historically marginalized community (e.g. Asian, Black, Disabled, Indigenous, Latinx, LGBTQIA2+, North African, South-West Asian). MAR-AMTA recognizes Affinity Groups as those who represent historically marginalized and oppressed community members. Individuals must submit their presentation within the “Call for Papers” call period. Presentations must undergo the anonymous review process and receive a passing score.
In the “Call for Papers,” individuals must select “yes” in the corresponding section for this compensation.
The Vice-President for Conference Planning will have sole access to this identifying information and will not question or police individuals identity.

SEPTEMBER 17, 2021: $35.00 registration discount
SEPTEMBER 24, 2021: $25.00 registration discount
OCTOBER 29, 2021: Final EXTENDED submission deadline. (No registration discount)
(Discounts are for concurrent sessions only. Both CMTE’s and Pre-Conference Institutes receive a stipend)

Last but not least, please follow THIS LINK to submit your proposal. We are looking forward to some excellent submissions!
