Dear Colleagues, Members, Workshopleaders and Participants,
yesterday we decided, that in Germany the Corona weather in autumn is too unpredictable – we have to wait out this storm!
Due to the renewed increase in the incidence of corona in many countries in Europe and beyond and due to the the associated uncertainty about new entry and exit regulations and the associated testing and/or quarantine requirements, it is with a heavy heart that we do not to hold our international psychodrama conference in presence this year.
Our reasons: Your personal costs, which could arise from possibly short-term testing or quarantine requirements, cannot be calculated with certainty and at the same time our conference would take place under distance and masking rules, as this is still the requirement for Germany and – by now – would also exclude dancing and singing. And we wouldn´t be as international as we are used to be.
In order to keep our biennial rhythm, which is tied to our biennial general assembly, we have already set a new date. The next International Psychodrama Conference will take place in two years from 22 to 24 of September 2023!
Instead of the three-day conference, a one-day online „un-conference“ will take place on Saturday, 25th of September from 10:00 am to 01:00 pm and 03:00 pm to 06:00 pm (CET).
You have registered for the conference? Then you now have the following options:
  • Stay and meet us at the 25th of September. You do not need to do anything else for this.
You were not registered for the conference but would like to participate in the online „un-conference“?
You have registered for the conference and already transferred your participation fee? Then you now have the following options:
  • You put the date of our next conference from 22-24 of September 2023 directly in your calendar and your registration and paid fee from 2021 remains valid. In addition, stay with us and meet us at the 25th of September 2021.
  • You cancel your participation completely and decide about 2023 later. Then you will get back the participation fee to the account from which the transfer came to our account. Otherwise please give us different bank details.
Please write to us which option you prefer. If we do not hear anything from you until the 12th of September 2021, you will get back the amount of fee you have already paid.
We will give you more information about our online „un-conference“ within the next weeks.
If you have offered a workshop at the conference, we will get back to you soon. We ask for a little patience.
If you are a member of the Psychodrama Association for Europe e.V. please notice that our general assembly at the 23rd of September 2021 will also take place digitally via Zoom. The access link will be sent to you soon. We will inform you about everything else as soon as possible!
We ask for your understanding. The retreat to the mainland was not easy for us, but sometimes that’s exactly how todeal with „Stormy Times“.
In this sense, stay healthy and see you soon,
The Organising Committee: Jacomien, Angela, Johanna, Manfred
