ARRC Symposium and The BAcC Annual Conference 2023


We’re excited to officially launch our ARRC Symposium and The BAcC Annual Conference for 2023!

The theme for the conference in 2023 is 象xiàng which can be translated as image, symbol or phenomenon. As with last year’s theme “Meeting points”, the idea is to not to have a restrictive theme, but one which allows delegates and speakers to contemplate and make their own connections.

Imagery is, of course, a key element of Chinese medicine – point names often use images drawn from nature or the empire. However, image and symbolism are also important in a modern context. Over the next couple of months, we’ll be exploring this theme and sharing more about what this can mean.
