The 2019 IBSC Annual Conference, Boys and the Arts: Great Minds, Big Hearts, offers something special to everyone committed to excellence in boys' education. Every day, each of us has the opportunity to touch the lives of our students, who are tomorrow's fathers and leaders. Working together, let’s explore simple ways to reach the hearts and expand the minds of our students, faculty, and parents.

We all know the paramount importance of the mental and physical health of our communities. At Selwyn House School, we believe that even a small school can make a large impact through the healing power of the arts in the lives of boys. We, in the world of boys’ schools, have a huge responsibility to help our students become empathic, aware, solid, respectful, open-hearted, and responsible people. This year’s conference theme and format focus on the need for boys to learn to share themselves emotionally for their own mental wellness. We also dive into the vital roles of parents, educators, and administrators, who must commit the needed time and resources to the arts and mental health.

All plenary sessions and keynote addresses take place at Fairmont the Queen Elizabeth. All workshops and featured studio sessions occur at Selwyn House School.

We hope to see you in Montréal!
