THE CALL FOR PAPERS OPENS IN SEPTEMBER 2019 and REGISTRATION IN EARLY 2020
As a collective, the Community Music Activity Commission (CMA) has demonstrated strong leadership in the music education field with its longstanding commitment to the principles of inclusivity, equity, and hospitality, and their application in practice. Our members are critically conscious music facilitators and researchers, frequently working in complex social settings and always at the forefront of discussions around inclusive musical practices and equitable access. We prioritise culturally and psychologically safe music making sites that allow marginalized communities to authentically respond to their artistic, social, political and cultural concerns.
We invite community musicians and their allies to reflect, share and celebrate examples of music making practices that continue the vision of this commission and demonstrate community music’s capacity to respond to the changing dimensions of diversity. CMA presenters are invited to address aspects of music as it touches on a wide range of themes. Themes may include (but are not limited to) musicking as: disruption, provocation, asylum-refuge, connection, healing and wellness, personal and/or social identity, social justice, innovation, creativity, and more.
Join us in Helsinki, Finland
The Community Music Activity Pre-Conference Seminar will be held in Helsinki from July 28 to August 1, 2020 at the Helsinki Music Centre, the Finnish National Opera and the Sibelius Academy Global Music Programme
Helsinki is a beautiful, small city. On the Baltic Sea and with lots of inlets, bays and islands it is very much a city of water. In the summer, when we will be there, you can find a wonderful open air food market right on the waterfront, where the tourist boats travel out to the islands.
We look forward to welcoming you to Helsinki from late July 2020 for what promises to be an exciting and valuable event Community Music pre-conference seminar.
