“Working with springforward to conceptualize, plan and design a poster for a presentation at the International Association for Dance Medicine and Science conference was a wonderful experience. Iona was quick to take on the project and lend her expertise in creating the poster. The finished project was a product of collaborative creativity, and captured the essence of the message we wanted the conference attendees to perceive. Thanks Iona!”– Ruth Bittorf Nurse Practitioner / Workshop Co-Facilitator Artists’ Health Centre, Toronto Western Hospital
