27th Annual Conference - Belfast, 2018

17th - 19th May

Walls: Protection and Provocation

Walls: Protection and Provocation is the theme of our 27th annual IAFP conference in Belfast. We have distinguished speakers from a broad range of backgrounds. Presentations will provide the ingredients to bridge monuments, concepts and attitudes. Clinical contributions will focus on structures and manoeuvres created by individuals and groups. It is here, that protection and provocation become densely intertwined.
