The Dutch Performing Arts Medicine Association (NVDMG) organizes its 18th 'Genees & Kunst' symposium (G&K18) on Thursday, March 29th, 2018, in the ‘Lourdeskerk’ in Scheveningen, in collaboration with the Haaglanden Medical Centre (HMC) and the Medical Centre for Dancers and Musicians (MCDM).

Since April 1st, 1993 injured dancers and musicians consult the MCDM, which, in addition to patient care and cure, is active in education, training and scientific research. The MCDM has helped to introduce 'Performing Arts Medicine' in academia in the Netherlands.

The location is chosen because of the performance “Last 7 Words” of the Dutch Don’t Dance Division (DeDDDD) and because Scheveningen celebrates its 200th anniversary as the seaside resort of The Hague.

For the first time, NVDMG not only promotes Performing Arts Medicine, but also focuses on 'Music as Medicine' and 'Dance for Health'.

The Symposium is open to everyone, in particular doctors, psychologists, (movement and other) scientists, allied health care providers and, of course, dancers and musicians.

 The full scientific program can be downloaded in pdf.
