Hemispheric Integrations: 2023 VASTA Annual Conference

Hemispheric Integrations:

Theoretical frameworks for the future of vocal practice and pedagogy.

July 10th - 14th, 2023

VASTA Annual Conference

VASTA's 2023 Conference will take place in charming La Paz, Baja California Sur, Mexico, in collaboration with CEUVOZ and the Instituto Sudcaliforniano de Cultura. The conference will be VASTA's 2023 Annual Conference and CEUVOZ's 2nd International Voice Conference. CEUVOZ will invite participants from across Mexico, as well as from every country in Iberoamérica.

VASTA's keynote speakers are Christine Hamel and Ann Cahill, authors of the incredible "Sounding Bodies: Identity, Injustice and the Voice." The goal of this year's conference is to engage in deep conversations with colleagues from across the Americas and beyond about a future of voice pedagogy that integrates innovative theory and practice.

Most of the conference activities will take place at the Teatro de la Ciudad, which is part of the Unidad Cultural Jesús Castro Agúndez. Some activities will take place at Hotel Araiza Palmira, where VASTA will have some single and shared rooms available. There are several other hotels around the city as well, with a variety of rates. Given the collaboration with CEUVOZ and ISC, this year's conference will not be a fully hybrid gathering. Instead, we plan to livestream a few main events and then record all other sessions, which will then be made available asynchronously for a reduced fee. This will include any pre-recorded, asynchronous VASTA member presentations.
