    Call for Submissions – Creating Space 12
    Thursday to Saturday, April 21 to 23, 2022
    Calgary, Alberta, Canada

    Updated Announcement

    Will it be a hybrid or purely virtual conference?

    We continue to hope for a hybrid conference with substantial in-person activities. But we are monitoring the pandemic situation and associated clinical and travel impacts. A final decision will be announced in February.


    All Our Communities: Relationships and Relationality in Healthcare

    During the last year our sense of connectedness — with each other, our communities, our patients and colleagues, teachers and students, our homes and workplaces, and the larger web of societal systems within which we are immersed — has deepened and expanded in some ways, and also been challenged in other ways. As we continue in this fraught time, hopefully to emerge soon, we invite reflection, inquiry, critical dialogue, proposed solutions, and communication concerning how our relationships have been ruptured, retained, re-imagined, and reformed. Within these changes, how do we understand relationality itself within healthcare practice and teaching? How do the humanities contribute to, and trouble relationships in medical contexts? How does medical practice challenge our understanding of our relationships, including our relationship with our own self? How do our relationships with the larger world, culture, environment, societies, and climate impact our health and the way we relate to and engage the healing arts? We encourage proposals from a wide range of perspectives and disciplines: creative, critical, and practical, to reflect and converse with us on these questions and themes.

    We are planning for an in-person conference enhanced by virtual access to select events. In the unfortunate circumstance of another wave of Covid-19 or other need for pandemic restrictions, we will accommodate by moving more events to a virtual space.

    Keynote Speakers

    Jennifer Buchanan, MBA, MTA. Tune In: Find the Music you Need Amongst all the Noise

    Jennifer Buchanan’s company, JB Music Therapy (JBMT), has been instrumental in the implementation of hundreds of music therapy programs throughout Canada since 1991, and has been thrice nominated for the Community Impact Award by the Calgary Chamber of Commerce. JBMT is a team of 18 Certified Music Therapists (MTAs) serving all ages in medical, education and community care settings. In her latest book, Wellness, Wellplayed: The Power of a Playlist, Jennifer offers readers an accessible and approachable path to crafting a healing and helpful soundscape all their own.

    Joel Carter, MD, Interdisciplinary Artist. The Art & Sacred Space of Our Stories: The Search for Balance and Connection in an Age of Chaos & Upheaval

    Joel Carter is a Palliative Care Specialist, as well as an author, speaker, storyteller and artist. Carter transitioned to Palliative Care in 2002 after receiving a Fellowship from the Archibald Bush Foundation to pursue interests in End of Life Medicine and Physician Leadership. He completed his fellowship at the Dana Farber Cancer Institute at Harvard University. He practices in Minneapolis where he speaks on topics related to quality of life, lessons his patients have shared with him on life’s meaning and purpose, and the integration of creative art processes with healing arts practice. Joel was a featured speaker at the Winnipeg TEDx ‘Forward Think’ June 2017 conference and was named by Minnesota Monthly as Best Doctor 2015 through 2021. His book, Rockpeople – Beyond Chester Creek, which explores life’s depths, the quest for balance, and the broken parts of the human journey, remains a bone fide regional hit.

    Opportunity for students

    The Peterkin Brett-MacLean Prize for best presentation by an undergraduate or graduate student or resident whose oral presentation/paper, poster, performance or installation. Certificate and $500 prize. Details of eligibility on CAHH website.

    Music events invitation

    The CS12 planning committee would like to make a special callout for presentations or panels with a focus on the intersection of music, health and well-being in alignment with the conference theme of All our Connections: Relationships and Relationality. Accepted submissions will form a music symposium within the conference. As well, the Friday evening event at CS will be a formal music performance for the enjoyment of all conference attendees.

    We invite CS participants with a special interest in music and health humanities to a Thursday evening small group, hands on, participation-based music workshop. However, the format requires us to limit the number of spaces. If you are interested in attending Thursday, please email splamond@ucalgary.ca, copy michaelf@ualberta.ca and describe your connection to music and health humanities. We will then confirm your attendance as space allows!

    Toutes nos collectivités: des relations et de la relationnalité en soins de santé

    Durant l’année passée, notre sens d’interdépendance—au niveau des individus, de nos communatés, de nos patients et collègues, de nos enseignants et étudiants, et de nos foyers et lieux de travail, ainsi que les réseaux des systèmes sociaux dans lesquels nous sommes entrelacés—a été enrichi dans une certaine façon, mais au même temps a été menacé par d’autres considérations. Pendant que nous poursuivons ce long chemin dans cette période tendue—en espérant que la lumière au bout du tunnel arrive dès que possible—nous invitons des réflexions, des enquêtes, du dialogue critique et des solutions proposées au sujet de nos relations: particulièrement comment celles-ci ont été brisées, conservées, réinventées, et reformées. Avec ces changements, comment comprenons-nous la relationnalité aux contextes de la pratique et de la pédagogie des soins de santé? Comment les sciences humaines peuvent-elles contribuer—et remettre en question—des relations humaines aux contextes médicaux? Comment la pratique clinique conteste-t-elle notre comprehension des relations humaines, y compris celles-là avec nous-mêmes? Notre rapport avec le monde, la culture, l’environnement, les societies, et le climat, comment influence-t-il la santé et la manière dans laquelle nous nous engageons à l’art de guérir? Pour répondre à ces questions, pour réfléchir à ces thèmes, et pour considérer ensemble comment agir, nous invitons des propositions provenant des perspectives mulitples et des domaines de recherche divers: créatives, critiques, et pratiques.

    Nous prévoyons une conférence en personne, augmentée par accès virtuel aux événements particuliers. Cependant, en cas d’une éventuelle vague ultérieure du coronavirus ou la nécessité d’autres restrictions liées à la pandémie actuelle, nous sommes prêts à modifier l’horaire tel que des événements supplémentaires seront offerts en format virtuel.
